April 15: Dominant Industrial Sectors in Newark

Last week, we presented four maps showing industrial sector concentrations.  This week, we combine the four views into a single map, showing the dominant industry for each census tract.  East of Newark, one finds logistics jobs.  Healthcare, education, and government jobs are to the west.  Downtown, one finds professional services, and scattered through the area are retail and hospitality pockets.  Feel free to expand the map to look across New Jersey using the toolbar in the upper-left corner of the map.  Also, scroll over individual tracts to reveal the numbers of jobs in each tract; some census tracts have many more jobs than others, which you won’t see by looking at the colors alone.
