This research analyses the changing distribution of employment across US metropolitan areas and identifies high-employment nodes within large metropolitan areas. It then compares outlying employment clusters with traditional central business districts and contrast employment clusters of varying job densities. It concludes that this method can use publicly available data, relies on a standardized geographic unit applicable across the whole country, and offers the ability to examine data from multiple census years
