20-Minute Neighborhood Maps

Employee Density Map Opens in new windowOverview

The map of employees is included for two primary reasons. The ratio of where people work to where people live (residential density to employee density) can, by itself, be a good determinant of the walkability of an area. In addition, easy access to services near a person’s employment can be an important way for people to meet basic needs without the use of a car. For example, employees can stop by a grocery store before heading home if it is within convenient walking distance. For this map, employees are estimated using readily available InfoUSA data that contains business addresses and statistics.
