    From 1982 to 2005 the United States experienced strong economic growth interrupted by two brief recessions; job growth, however, was not evenly distributed throughout the country. By employing dynamic rather than static shift-share decomposition, and by displaying shift-share analysis through graphical techniques based on shift-share components, we highlight varying job growth experience at the census division level through two complete expansions and into the latest upswing. We look at annual differences over the years covered and additively consider longer term performance. Furthermore, we consider industry contribution to area employment growth over these periods at the 1-digit SIC/NAICS Supersector levels.
