MAPS IN THE NEWS:
A recent analysis by the Brookings Institution found that just five cities -- Boston, Seattle, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose/Silicon Valley -- captured 90% of all new "innovation" jobs created in the U.S. from 2005 to 2017. Innovation jobs, be they high tech or biotech, telecom or aerospace, account for only 3% of all jobs but 6% of national GDP. These maps, from an article in The New York Times, show which metro areas have been gaining and losing innovation jobs. www.nytimes.com/2019/12/09/business/economy/innovation-jobs-cities.html
