- On May 6, a working paper, entitled, “An Occupational Approach to Analyzing Regional Invention” was released. The purpose of this working paper is to refine and evaluate the occupation-driven approach for analyzing regional invention suggested by Wojan, Dotzel, and Low (2015), who argue that patenting rates should be computed on the subset of workers that might plausibly contribute to patenting. The authors introduce several modifications to their original analysis, including use of a special tabulation of more detailed occupation data and added controls for regional characteristics that could confound identification of the inventive class—the group of occupations most associated with patent production. The authors then critically evaluate the findings by implementing a simultaneous equations model of the interrelationship between the composition and productivity of the inventive class.
Statistics of Income Division (IRS)
- In May, State and County Migration Data, 2019-2020 was released. These data show the migration between both States and counties in separate datasets. The data include migration flows at the State level, by size of adjusted gross income and age of the primary taxpayer, and are based on year-to-year address changes reported on individual income tax returns filed with the IRS. The data present migration patterns by State or county for the entire United States and are available for inflows (the number of new residents who moved to a State or county and where they migrated from) and outflows (the number of residents who left a State or county and where they moved to).
