New ISEA Studies
The University of Redlands’ Institute for Spatial Economic Analysis offers science- and research-based spatial analysis and forecasts of economic phenomena. The ISEA has produced two new studies concerning the economy of Southern California.
Is Southern California Too Dependent on Logistics?
This study found that the corridor in the Inland Empire spanned by I-10 and CA-60 depends heavily on logistics jobs. ISEA researchers wanted to know how different areas in Southern California depended on the logistic sector, and analyzed ZIP codes to determine the data. In certain areas, the share of the logistics industry employment was approximately 20 times the Southern California average.
Southern California Employment Machine Idling
This study finds that year-over-year job growth is idling in most areas of Southern California. Significant growth has occurred only in small pockets of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego County while the Inland Empire continues to lag behind.
