Labor Market Information: Win-Win Network Community of Practice

Using E-Tools to Identify Industry Concentration Ratios (podcast)

Posted by LMI Win-Win Network - On February 27, 2012 (EST)

This presentation will show you how to use the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Location Quotient Calculator to compare a given locality’s concentration of industry employment against that industry’s share of employment in the nation, state, or metropolitan area. This quotient is sometimes used by economic developers to compare industries across areas.


The podcast itself can be played by clicking on the arrow pointing right, in the bottom left corner inside the large black box. If the box appears entirely black, simply click the refresh button on your Internet browser. To expand it to the entire screen, go to the bottom of the box, and click on the 4 small arrows pointing outward (just to the left of the word “vimeo”).


The identical lesson can be viewed in a 1-page printed version at Using E-Tools to Identify Industry Concentration Ratios (transcript).
