MICHAEL D. SANDERS 
Jackson County Executive
The Eastern Jackson County (EJC) Development Alliance and Jackson County are once again pleased to present the 2010 edition of Eastern Jackson County by the Numbers. Through the Development Alliance, Jackson County strives to build a consensus and bring communities together to pursue economic development opportunities. Development Alliance members understand that they can more effectively spur growth through cooperating as partners rather than competing as rivals. Simply put, we recognize the fact that when one community experiences a development, the positive impact goes beyond its city limits. The benefits extend to each community’s neighbors in the Alliance and throughout the entire County and region. While the County’s Web site, www.jacksongov/econdev, continues to be a vital source for viewing potential development sites, the Development Alliance has a another program to further pool resources. “OneConnect EJC” brings under one umbrella, a multitude of Eastern Jackson County resources, including each community’s economic development council or corporation, area chambers of commerce, the Full Employment Council and local colleges. Through www.OneConnectEJC.com, business leaders and entrepreneurs can tap into a wide array of information, ranging from workforce solutions and financing to educational support. Jackson County and the Eastern Jackson County Development Alliance do more than just attract new businesses. Another equally crucial point of emphasis is helping already existing businesses grow. Approximately 70 percent of all new jobs created in Jackson County come from these existing businesses. Visit our Web sites and review this report. They demonstrate that our region is a great place to live and work, to start or relocate a business, to grow and to prosper with your family.

Very truly yours,

Michael D. Sanders Jackson County Executive

Target Industries
A brief analysis was conducted to determine what industries would be most complementary to the existing workforce in Eastern Jackson County based on the current occupational distribution. Information on the occupational distribution of the resident workforce from Claritas was combined with information from the Missouri Department of Economic Development on rapidly growing occupations in the metro area to compile a list of key occupational categories. The focus was limited to skilled and semi-skilled occupations. These included primarily professional and healthcare occupations such as customer service representatives, computer software engineers, computer system analysts and administrators, managerial and financial analysts, pharmacy technicians, and medical assistants. This information on key occupations was analyzed using data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis to determine which industries could most effectively utilize this mix of occupations. The results indicate a variety of industries, primarily service-based, that would be compatible with the resident labor force of this region. Many of these industries may already have some presence in the region and the metro area. Also, while labor is certainly a key factor in site location, there may be other business climate factors that could enhance or detract from the future growth of these industries in Eastern Jackson County.

In the old economy, economic growth was the result of increases in the supply of capital, labor, or natural resources. While these factors are still important, growth in the new economy is fueled by increases in knowledge and innovation. High-tech industries, where innovations are adopted quickly, have grown faster than the overall economy. Because this trend is expected to continue, high-tech industries will be an important influence on overall economic growth going forward. While hightech industries make up less than 3 percent of overall employment nationally, they are key drivers of the new economy. High tech employment tends to be most concentrated within metro areas and includes jobs in electronics, aerospace, software and computerrelated services, instruments and biomedical industries. Within the Kansas City metro area overall, only about 3.0 percent of employment is within high tech industries. In Eastern Jackson County, 2.7 percent of the economic base is in high tech industries, compared to 2.3 percent in Jackson County. Another measure of innovation capacity in the new economy is the share of college degrees granted in science and engineering fields. There is a critical shortage of scientists, engineers and programmers nationwide. As demand increases, the supply of these students graduating from universities stagnates, or even declines in some cases. So, growing a high-quality, scientific workforce is critical to boosting innovation and productivity. Within the Kansas City region there are 33 accredited colleges and universities surveyed annually by the National Science Foundation. Overall, 36 percent of the degrees awarded at these institutions are in science and engineering, compared to 33 percent nationally. Some schools in the region, such as DeVry Institute of Technology, Cleveland Chiropractic College, Concorde Career College, Vatterott College and St. Luke’s College, award 50 percent of more of their degrees in these fields. While the number of people using computers may not directly affect economic activity or labor force quality in the short run, it is representative of an area’s progress toward the digital economy. Regions where a higher percentage of residents have computers and internet access at home are generally more technologically savvy and open to change and innovation. Due to the declining cost of computers and web access, a broader range of people are starting to use the Internet. Although people of varying education levels are increasingly using computers and the Internet, areas with higher educational attainment are more likely to have higher computer usage. In 2003, the most recent data available, Jackson County had a somewhat higher share of people with computers in their homes and a significantly higher share of people using the Internet at home compared to the Kansas City metro area.

Eastern Jackson County by the Numbers

Greenwood
Greenwood, Missouri is a quaint yet vibrant community in the southern portion of Eastern Jackson County. With a population of about 4,700, it comprises just 1.4 percent of the total Eastern Jackson County population. Greenwood is located on 150-Highway, which connects the community to Highway 7 to the east and 291 Highway to the west. The community also has access to the Union Pacific, Santa Fe and Amtrak rail lines. While not as busy and booming as Lee's Summit to the north, Greenwood is part of the top-rated R-7 School District and offers many business and shopping conveniences. Historic population growth in the 1990s and 2000s was spurred by the city’s small town character, that offers residents a unique identity that is often missing from today's homogenous and predictable urban sprawl. The median age in Greenwood is just 31.8 years, which is significantly younger than the Eastern Jackson County median of 36.3 years. According to 2009 estimates, there are about 2,500 employed persons in Greenwood. The population is very well educated, as statistics show that 93.5 percent of adults in the area have completed a high school education. The city’s median household income is also very high at $79,511, which is nearly 40 percent more than the Eastern Jackson County median of $56,996. The median home value in Greenwood is $152, 813, which is 20.6 percent higher than the median value in Eastern Jackson County of $126,650. These higher values are also reflected in the fact that 42 percent of homes in Greenwood are valued between $150,000 and $199,999, compared to 19 percent in Eastern Jackson County and 19.7 percent in the metro area as a whole. The largest employer in Greenwood is a tool manufacturer that employs approximately 100 people. Since there is a limited industrial base in Greenwood, the city is interested in diversifying its economy through economic development programs and incentives. Greenwood is working with existing businesses to identify opportunities to stimulate local economic growth and also identifying development strategies that link Greenwood to the surrounding regional and metropolitan economies.
