Officials Ask for Laborshed Study Data

By Ellis Codjoe, September 12, 2019

The Davis County Development Corporation is conducting a laborshed study and they need the input of area businesses and community members.

The purpose of the study is to measure the availability and characteristics of Bloomfield area workers. Laborshed studies are utilized by economic development teams and other community members to better understand the local market, make informed business decisions, and maintain a high-quality workforce.

Residents will take part in a confidential survey online and answer questions pertaining to employment status, current and desired wages, education level, and other things. Identifiable information, such as date of birth, will not be requested.

Laborshed studies are done every year and the results can be seen here.

The study is part of a partnership with Iowa Workforce Development and Iowa Economic Development Authority.
