The current issue of Trendlines answers the most frequently asked questions about Utah's economy and labor market information - questions like, "Why is your data always so old?", "Why don't you provide more localized data?", and "What's the difference between median and average and which is the better measure?"
John Krantz explains about regional economic growth and the economic base concept. Jim Robson explains industry vs. occupation in looking at jobs. And Lecia Langston dispels myths about Utah women in the labor force.
It's all good! Reading, that is, in the Sept-Oct issue of Trendlines now at your local DWS office and on the Web at http://jobs.utah.gov/wi/pubs/trendlines/julaug10/index.html.
