The Measurement of Employment Diversity For States and Regions
Interdisciplinary Studies and Professional Development
This paper uses an index to measure the level of employment diversity at the state level of two periods spanning two decades. The index is based on aggregating employment at eight major sectors. The findings indicate a movement toward more specialization in the latter period (2000) as compared to an earlier period (1970s).
