2019 Cedar Valley Region Laborshed Released 

A Laborshed is much like a watershed. However, instead of documenting water sources into a lake or basin it documents labor sources traveling to a particular employment center for work.

It is a supply-side labor availability study based upon current commuting patterns which are not restricted by political boundaries such as county or state lines.

Further, the Laborshed Study reports the workforce characteristics that are unique to a community’s Laborshed area including: employment status; likeliness to change or accept employment; occupation & industry; job search resources used; current & desired wages and benefits; age; education; and distance willing to travel for work, among others.
