"City Dynamics: Unraveling the Complexity of Urban Systems"

Cities are intricate and ever-evolving systems characterized by dynamism. Urban patterns are in a constant state of flux, influenced by the lifestyle, living arrangements, and work preferences of the population. These factors, along with the interplay of economics and geography, as well as the rapid advancements in technology, have a profound impact on the movement and interactions of individuals within cities. This dynamic interplay results in the emergence of novel patterns of change.

The Dynamic City Project specifically delves into the employment aspects related to the economic dimension of cities. Leveraging Employment Statistics (LODES), it provides insights into the geographical distribution of employment based on both workplace and residence locations. Variables such as earnings, industry, gender, race, and educational attainment between 2009 and 2017 in the state of California are tracked. The project aims to showcase the dominant subcategories of these variables at the city and zip code levels, shedding light on the intricate dynamics of urban employment patterns.
