Population, Employment, Earnings, and Personal Income Trends

Based on federal data sources, Headwaters Economics, U.S. BLM, and U.S. Forest Service produced a detailed social economic profile at the county level. The profile, 42 pages long, contains tables and charts that illustrate long-term trends in population; employment and personal income by industry; average earnings, business development; retirement and other non-labor income; and agriculture.

The profile is to help community leaders, planners, and residents understand the makeup of their local economy and the trend, identify opportunities for economic development, prepare for potential problems that arise from a changing economy. With a common base, the performance of local economy can be compared with that of the nation and state.
