Special Focus Reports

Special Focus Reports take a deeper dive into the data and explore finer segments of the information. They offer a comprehensive view of economic activity and reveal insights into more granular trends in specific geographies, industries, and markets.

The reports provide comprehensive charts and views along with in-depth analysis for specific indicators or market segments. For example, the Annual Report on Employment and Wages (Employment Report) goes well beyond the trailing ten year historical charts presented in the Monthly Market Reports.

In addition to the consolidated historical charts by counties, the Employment Report includes year-over-year monthly employment charts for many of the key counties, tables showing employment by industry with annual data, year to year comparisons, and multiple time period comparative calculations and percentages. Numerous other comparisons, calculations, and charts are provided for unique trending views, growth analysis, and industry composition evaluation.
