Where are the tech workers: comparing day and night

• Over 1 in 4 of the 180,000 STEM (Science & Technology) workers in the North Texas region work in the either the areas along the Dallas North Tollway in Plano near Legacy or centered around Las Colinas in Irving. The elevated purple ZIP codes on the daytime map show this dense concentration of talent.

• At night, the population of STEM workers spreads out more widely across Collin County stretching from north of the Bush Turnpike to McKinney north of Highway 121, showing the extent of the main commute radius for most of the workforce.

• But what is more interesting is how the areas adjacent to the daytime hot spots (Las Colinas, Legacy, Frisco) also appear to be popular areas to live, contributing to the formation of vibrant “live, work, play” areas for high-technology workers in suburban areas, thanks to retail amenities and multi-family developments.
