Where to move if you want to be an Atmospheric and Space Scientist

A very interesting map showing the disproportionately popular job for each state. There seem to be a good amount of science and tech jobs leading the way, but what is going on in Missouri? Shared from Business Insider

These are not the most common jobs in these states. That map would be boring because “retail salesperson” is the most common job in 40 states and the country.

This map instead shows jobs that are disproportionately concentrated in each state.

For example, in New York, there were about 7,590 fashion designers out of 9,097,650 employed people. So fashion designers account for about 8.3 out of every 10,000 jobs in New York.

In the US, there are about 19,230 fashion designers out of 140,400,040 employed people. So about 1.4 of every 10,000 jobs in America are in fashion design.

The BLS calls the ratio of these two rates the location quotient for a job in a particular area. The location quotient of fashion designers in New York is 8.3 divided by 1.4, which is about six. That is, there are about six times as many fashion designers per 10,000 total employed people in New York as in the US.

The map shows the job in each state with the highest location quotient, among jobs with at least 1,000 people employed. These jobs exist at much higher rates in each state than in the country.
