Employment in High Wage Clusters

Clusters of business that share and trade resources, and provide additional incentives for locating within a particular region or metropolitan area are thought to contribute to the development of new firms, and the expansion of existing firms within the cluster. The Tucson metropolitan region has very few clusters that approach what might be considered as being of sufficient size to act as an entrepreneurial stimulus. Only the Aerospace cluster exceeds a 1% share of national cluster employment.
