In national news:

A new location quotient map from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) measures how concentrated an occupation is in a geographic area compared with the nation. In Louisiana, the category of “personal care, service, installation and repair,” specifically commercial drivers, was the most concentrated occupation with a 16.9 quotient. This means that Louisiana employs commercial drivers at 16.9 times the national rate. New Jersey and Nevada were the only other two states in the nation with the service concentration.
