It is used daily by thousands of people to compile, analyze and communicate information about occupations, and to understand the jobs found throughout Canada's labour market. (esdc.gc.ca) The version used in this report is NOC 2011 unless otherwise specified.

3. Location quotient (LQ) is a way of quantifying how concentrated a particular occupation is in a region compared to the nation or province. A quotient of 1.00 means EMO has the same share of the occupation as the nation/province. A quotient higher than 1.00 means EMO has a greater share, and lower than 1.00 means EMO’s share is lower than the average (EMSI 2018.1).
