About the data
Job Density in Devon is 0.91, higher than all other authorities in the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (Devon, Somerset, Plymouth, Torbay) area and 0.7 above the national average. This is indicative of a good supply of jobs. Over the last 10 years Devon has consistently had a greater job density than the national average, with an increase since 2011 following wider trends. Jobs relate to business and an increasing job density is reflected in the rising business count figures over the same period.
