Community Labor Profiles (CLPs)

This interactive program will allow you to create a customized report on the size and characteristics of the labor supply in a community. This application uses a "laborshed" approach to determine the available labor supply. South Dakota communities use the profiles in their economic development activities. Companies use the profiles to help evaluate the labor supply available to staff a new or expanding business.

Place Profile

To create a Community Labor Profile (CLP) based on a city, town or Census Designated Place (CDP), just click on the selected place. Use the scroll bar to move through the list. The CLP will use the county where the place is located to select additional counties, based on commuting to the county, to determine the labor supply for the selected place. Both in-state and out-of-state counties can be included. You will not be able to alter the counties included in this CLP since they are predetermined by Census commuting patterns. You will be able to create a unique title for the Community Labor Profile.

Area Profile
To create a Community Labor Profile (CLP) based on a county, click on the selected county or MSA. Just use the scroll bar to move through the list. The CLP will use the selected county or MSA to select additional counties, based on commuting to the county, to determine the labor supply for the selected county or MSA. Both in-state and out-of-state counties are included. You will not be able to alter the counties included in the CLP, since they are predetermined by Census commuting patterns. You will be able to create a unique title for the Community Labor Profile. If you want to create a CLP with a single county, you will have to use the custom area profile.

Custom Area Profile
To create a customized Community Labor Profile (CLP), click on the Custom Area Profile. You will be able to create a custom area profile comprised of counties that you select. Both in-state and out-of-state counties can be included. Detailed instructions on creating a custom area profile will be displayed on the following screen.
