This set of choropleth maps shows the most prevalent industry in each area, based on workers in the area. Note that location is based on where people live rather than where people work. So read each map as people in an area are most likely to be in a given industry.

Shown in a shade of light red, education and health care clearly dominate in most areas. However, as you look closer at city centers, variation is much higher.
