MEMPHIS, TN - Jonesboro and northeast Arkansas are to be included in a comprehensive analysis of the labor market in the greater Memphis region.

Survey teams will be at various locations throughout the region conducting in-person interviews with area residents.  All individual responses will be kept confidential.
