Employment Centers

Employment Centers

In support of the San Diego Forward: The 2021 Regional Plan, SANDAG is undertaking an effort to identify employment centers in the region. Employment centers are areas with high densities of employment.

The analysis identifies where employment centers are in the region, what industries are located there, where the employees in these areas commute from, and what their commutes look like.

The analysis will inform the 2021 Regional Plan and support the key strategies, known as the 5 Big Moves, by providing quantitative data to help develop critical transportation connections throughout the region.
