Labor Force Data

The labor force is the pool of both potential and available workers. In most cases, the labor force is profiled by where a worker lives, not by where they work. You may live in Davis County and work in Salt Lake County, but you are part of Davis County’s labor force. Yet, the labor pool available to Salt Lake County businesses may extend out and into neighboring county’s labor forces. This module focuses upon labor as an entity and profiles some of its characteristics and distributions.
