Industry Employment Dynamics, 2014 The level of self-employment has been steady since 2009, but with growing employment, its share of the local workforce has slipped gradually over time since 2005. The majority of the self-employed work in the oil and gas industry. Increasingly more of those selfemployed can be found in construction, real estate, and accommodation and food services, all of which have grown at a rapid pace. Bee County’s largest businesses are mostly in retail trade. Other major businesses spread across different sectors. 2 Oil & Gas Extraction 1.5 Health Care Agricultural Location Quotient (2014) Self-Employment Other Services 1 Accommodation & Food Services Management of Companies & Insurance Finance Arts & Entertainment Real Estate 0.5 Admin.
