August 10, 2010 at 11:44 am Leave a comment

We have had several discussions about the importance of workforce commuting patterns to Snohomosh County’s economic base. Here is a data source that tells us how important in- and out-commuting are in terms of earnings.

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis’ (BEA’s) estimates of gross commuters’ flows reflect the annual earnings of in-commuters and out-commuters for a given county. In 2008, Snohomish County had inflows of earnings valued at $9.74 billion and outflows of earnings valued at $3.04 billion. Comparatively, King County had inflows of earnings valued at $4.53 billion and outflows of earnings valued at $18.8 billion.
