Where Employees Live and Work

Florida's workforce has been hard hit by job losses in the accommodation and food services, arts/entertainment/recreation, and retail industries, while health care and social assistance workers are central to the response to the pandemic. These maps show neighborhood concentrations of jobs in these industries by workplace locations and employees’ home locations. Click any Census tract to see the total number of jobs by business and by workers’ home locations. Rent data is also provided to flag areas where workers may be struggling with high housing costs.
