A Harvard doctoral student took the Census’ employer data and plotted them on a map, where one point on the map is one job, color-coded by type of job. The results are a new way to see the types of employment that make up Maine’s cities and towns.
Portland has its share of blue (professional services) and yellow (retail and hospitality).
Brunswick has mostly green (healthcare) dots.
Lewiston-Auburn is dotted with green (healthcare), yellow (retail and hospitality) and a little red (manufacturing):
Bangor has deep concentrations of green (healthcare) and yellow (retail) jobs.
