Location Quotient (LQ) is a way of discovering the industries or occupations that are truly unique and specialized in a region’s economy (compared to the national average). For example, if the commercial bakery industry in a city accounts for 2.5% of jobs but only 1% of jobs nationally, then the city’s commercial bakeries have an LQ of 2.5, which means that this industry is 2.5x more concentrated in the region than the typical region.
