Appendix A - Data Sources and
Calculations
Location Quotient
Location quotient (LQ) is a way of quantifying how concentrated a particular industry, cluster, occupation, or
demographic group is in a region as compared to the nation. It can reveal what makes a particular region unique
in comparison to the national average.

Occupation Data
Emsi occupation employment data are based on final Emsi industry data and final Emsi staffing patterns. Wage
estimates are based on Occupational Employment Statistics (QCEW and Non-QCEW Employees classes of
worker) and the American Community Survey (Self-Employed and Extended Proprietors). Occupational wage
estimates also affected by county-level Emsi earnings by industry.
