The economy section provides data for several measures of Sonoma County’s output (i.e. production of goods and services). These measures include total taxable sales, real GDP per capita, and the total value of exports. The industry diversity index is a measure of the concentration of employment across sectors. An industry diversity score of 0 indicates that employment is concentrated in one sector, while a score of 1 means equal distribution of employment across all sectors. The higher the industry diversity index is, the more resilient an economy may be during an economic downturn.
