Abstract

A Laborshed is the area or region from which an employment center draws its commuting workers. Community Laborshed analyses are conducted across the State of Iowa and are used to determine the approximate boundaries of a Laborshed area and to measure the availability and characteristics of its workers. The following analysis is a summary of the data compiled from 6,000 survey responses provided by individuals between the ages of 18 and 64 years old residing in the State. These responses were extracted from the statewide Laborshed database of 12,088 surveys conducted between February and December 2016 covering all statewide ZIP codes containing more than 60 households.
