Josh Birks, the City’s Economic Advisor says, “The bi-annual targeted industries brochures gives us a snapshot into how our top performing industries are fairing. We collect interesting news articles from local companies and work closely with CSU’s Regional Economist to calculate the number of employees in each targeted industry, the employment composition within industries and total quarterly earnings for each industry.”
The latest issues cover news articles from June-November 2011 and compares employment data from 2009Q4 to 2010Q4. Additional content includes patents earned per industry for 2010 and 2011 (if applicable), and resources within the City and targeted industries.
