Manufacturing Employment in Missouri over the Past Decade

 

The manufacturing sector is the fifth largest employer in the United States and the third largest in Missouri (after health care and retail trade).┬áThis month, our partners at the Missouri Spatial Data Information Service (MSDIS) examine how manufacturing employment has changed in Missouri counties between 2011 and 2021 using County Business Patterns data from MCDC and the U.S. Census Bureau.┬áThese maps show us how important manufacturing is (and isn’t) in certain counties in Missouri.

Missouri Census Data Center frequently works with MSDIS on mapping and data projects. MSDIS is a spatial data retrieval and archival system offering many mapping resources, primarily focused on the state of Missouri.

Missouri Unemployment Rates over Time

This month, our partners at the Missouri Spatial Data Information Service (MSDIS) present a swipe map showing changing patterns of unemployment in Missouri across two decades.

The left side of the swipe map shows unemployment rates by Missouri county for 2000, and the right side shows the rates for 2020. Clicking on any county will show basic employment and workforce stats for the selected county and year.

Missouri’s Changing Legislative Boundaries

This month, our partners at the Missouri Spatial Data Information Service (MSDIS) present a set of “swipe maps” showing how the Missouri House and Senate district boundaries changed after the 2020 US Census.

The red outlines on each map (the left side of the swipe tool, in this case) indicate the new, post-2020 districts, and the blue outlines represent the previous boundaries. Clicking on any district will show the district number and, for the newer boundaries, the current office holder.
