Exploring Employment Diversity in New Jersey

In this series of posts, we will be exploring how employment is distributed throughout New Jersey. In our exploration, we will be utilizing the Diversity Index to analyze the diversity of all jobs in the state by their industry sector. We will be using the Diversity Index in much the same way as in our previous posts, only here, rather than analyzing the diversity of a particular characteristic of individuals or households, the objects of our analysis will be jobs. Using jobs rather than individuals employed in jobs will help us to understand the diversity of the employment base within different areas of the state.
