Resident to Employee Ratio
|Ratio of Residents to Employees
City role: significant
| Ratio of number of residents to employees.
The resident-to-employee ratio for 2012 is 0.71, slightly higher than it was in 2011. Achieving a better balance indicates that more people may live closer to work, and as a result, are able to reduce commuting needs and participate more in their community. The total number of residents includes those who do not work for pay, such as children, retirees, and others. Redmond’s Comprehensive Plan contains policies supportive of providing a variety of housing types to increase the resident-employee ratio.
