Map: State employment rates in each county in Minnesotaby Bill Catlin, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — This map depicts non-education state government employment as a portion of total employment in each county in 2010. Statewide, non-education state government jobs represent an average of 1.5 percent of all jobs.
In this map, counties at or below that concentration are shown in shades of green. Their economies are theoretically less subject to a shutdown.
Counties above the statewide concentration are in shades of red because their economic risks are greater in the event of a shutdown. The greater the concentration, the darker the color.
State government educational services employment is excluded because those jobs are in the state's higher education institutions, which appear less vulnerable to a government shutdown.
State government educational services data is not available for Waseca County, but overall state government employment in the county is relatively small, so we assigned a value of zero for state educational services.
