Labor Market Distribution and Pay Scale

Notice

We do not have specific information on labor distribution for area. However, falls within the metropolitan area, so this is the information that is being provided.

Labor Stats as of 2000

The labor market distribution is based on the National Compensation Survey produced annually by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The survey results are recorded at the MSA level for all MSA's in the US.

The chart and report that follow compare the MSA with the National average, in terms of the expected number of workers for a particular job classification and their annual rate of pay compared to all others for that same job as a national average. Twenty-two major categories are shown, in addition there are 709 sub-categories that are documented, however, they are only shown in the report if the sub-category is out of the ordinary when compared to the national average. The 'Pool' indicates the number of people who fall within a job classification in this MSA. The 'Rank' is an expectation ranking of how this pool ranks with the national average. Another way to interpret this number is by way of an example. If the rank is 3 then you can say that this MSA has 3 times the number of people you would expect for an MSA of this size and for that job classification. Finally the income column is the average annual income for people in this category in this MSA. The column has been color-coded to reflect how this income level compares to the national average (red below, blue below, black expected)

The chart graphically illustrates the major categories and how they relate to the national average. An explanation of how to interpret the chart follows the chart itself. Source: US Bureau of Labor Statistics and Synergos Technologies, Inc.

Major Job Classification Distribution
QuandrantDescription
1Categories falling into the first quadrant show there are fewer people with that job classification then you would expect for this MSA as compared to the National average and that those people are making above average incomes. Implications for the employer: the employer may find he must pay more or offer better benefits to attract the the people that fall within this category due to a limited job pool. Furthermore, the choices for talented people may be poor since the job pool is smaller then you would expect.

2Categories falling into the second quadrant show there are more people with that job classification then you would expect for this MSA as compared to the National average and that those people are making above average incomes. Implications for the employer: the employer may find he must pay more or offer better benefits to attract the the people that fall within this category due to market conditions. However, this may be offset by a greater range of talent to choose from.

3Categories falling into the third quadrant show there are fewer people with that job classification then you would expect for this MSA as compared to the National average and that those people are making below average incomes. Implications for the employer: the employer may find he will be able to pay under the national average for human resources, although this is offset by a smaller pool of people to choose from.

4Categories falling into the fourth quadrant show there are more people with that job classification then you would expect for this MSA as compared to the National average yet those people are making below average incomes. Implications for the employer: the employer may find he will be able to pay under the national average for human resources, and benefit from a larger than normal pool of people to choose from.
