Service Industries - Specialization in Leisure Services, 1996 This map shows the difference between the actual employment in leisure services and the expected level, based on the city's population and income. Leisure services are a complex group.

These activities are oriented to high-income consumers and are often found in high-amenity rural locations, as well as in many big cities.
