The 2022 version includes select occupational salaries from various careers, additional demographic information, and an updated version of the region’s largest employers.

Information like this is used when people are relocating into the area as well as when the RAEDC responds to Requests for Information for real estate professionals, brokers, and site selectors. This is especially important when we talk about our customized education to workforce pipelines, the support of the 7:2:1 workforce ratio, our skilled workforce, and the cost of doing business in the region.

These data points demonstrate why we are Your Opportunity Region.

The RAEDC supplies the community data each year as a regional snapshot utilizing nationally recognized data sources. This publication includes information on population, largest employers, and industries that are key to our region, such as advanced manufacturing and logistics/distribution. Other important data includes quality of place and statistical information about the people that call our region home to provide a well-rounded representation of the region.
