The BEA released county level GDP estimates this morning. This is literally a quick dive for three ND counties right after release.
Continuing with some of the comparison points of different areas in North Dakota I look at metro area wages and the differences between them.
I look at the metropolitan area labor force in North Dakota. These seem natural comparison groupings, though the data show serious differences that may change that impression.
I revised the data content of an earlier post and make use of clustering to again look at possible comparison groupings in North Dakota.
In an effort to help ND counties think about peers and relative performance I started an ongoing project on this topic. This is a first pass with some differing cluster sizes and a very basic amount of data. There will be modifications to come.
