Illinois - LSGL Analysis of County Employment Growth by Selected Industry, 1969-2016
Illinois

Introduction & Summary

The Performance of Your Industry: How Does It Stack Up?

Leading...or Lagging? Gaining...or Slipping?

Stronger...or Weaker? Better...or Worse?

Borrowing from an approach that sometimes appears in the finance sections of the popular press, LSGL analysis is a handy and versatile way to compare, portray and classify the patterns of growth across all of Illinois' 102 counties.
Here, we adopt this approach to gauge and compare the employment growth of Illinois' county counties over the latest available year (2016) against the backdrop of their growth over the previous decade (2007-2016). In so doing, we classify their growth and performance into 4 broad categories: Leading, Slipping, Gaining and Lagging. Particular attention is given to highlighting and assessing the growth of a specific selected major industry sector.
This LSGL module dynamically generates and calibrates a barometer for gauging the economic growth and performance of the 102 counties of Illinois wherein "...unlike in the land of Lake Wobegon, not all the counties are above average."
