Use an Interactive Map to Explore Location Quotients

The interactive map you explored in the previous module allowed you to quickly find and compare location quotients (LQs) for an entire MSA (Miami Valley), as well as for individual counties within the area. The data visualization also showed you LQ metrics using two different reference points–the U.S. and the state. Now that you’ve had a chance to look at the region through the lens of location quotient, select your answers to the accompanying analysis questions. (Note that the data visualization will remain on the page when you click the button to advance to the knowledge check.)
