American Institute for Research, 2015


Work and workforce are behind much of what we do at ICAD.

The Iowa City area is strategically located in the center of the largest population region in the state of Iowa, attracting workers from a 60-mile radius.

With a population of more than 458,000, and a labor footprint higher than 640,000, Iowa's Creative Corridor and Iowa City consistently attract knowledge workers and skilled professionals.

Our area offers an abundance of opportunities for those looking for a rewarding work life balance. And the affordability, capability, and productivity of our workforce are why companies come, stay, and thrive here.
