Alaska - Industry vs. Industry Structure & Performance: Earnings Across Counties and Regions for Selected Industries

Introduction & Summary

Pair and compare two distinct earnings industry sectors of your choosing to examine their relative importance and performance across all of Alaska's 34 county economies over 1969-2022. Contrast and assess, for example, the comparative importance of earnings for the Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services sector across the counties of Alaska against Accommodation and Food Services, or any other two sectors you elect to select.
Apply the interactive tools included in this module to conduct your own research about how any two industry sectors compare and contrast across the counties of Alaska. The analytical tools at your disposal for ranking and sorting the importance and growth of individual industry sectors across counties include: percent of total industry earnings locally, location quotients, percent of State total sector earnings, growth rates and growth rates differenced against overall averages locally and their counterparts nationwide.
