How Goals Were Set

Criteria provided by the federal government is used to both categorize employees into a specific job type, and to determine the number of available workers for each specific job type.

In determining the number of available workers for each job type, the City uses Census information as provided in the 2010 Five-Year American Community Survey (ACS) for the recruitment area that defines where we actively attract and recruit applicants from.  This recruitment area is called the Relative Labor Market.  The city's Relative Labor Market is a 13-county area, comprised of the 11 counties of the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul geography, as well as the two counties of Wisconsin which are nearest to us.

The 2010 ACS data is collected for our specific Relative Labor Market, and within the comparable job types (known as federal job categories).  The ACS data indicates the number of people of color and females who are of working age, available to work in our labor market, and have the general required skill sets for the types of positions that the City hires.  This number of "available" workers in our labor market is our workforce goal.
