Employment imageSEMCOG has place-of-work employment estimates that provide a detailed view of economic change at the community level. The estimates are broken down by industrial sector and cover two points in time - March 2002 and March 2005.  The estimates cover wage and salary employment, but do not include construction jobs.

Place-of-work employment is needed as a basis for SEMCOG's forecast of population, households, and employment, and for the long range transportation plan. The estimates are based on the mapping of business-establishments as reported for wage and salary workers covered by state and federal unemployment insurance programs.
