A table of percentages that shows, on average, how regional occupations are divided up among regional industries. For example, a (simplified) inverse staffing pattern for registered nurses may show that 70% of RNs are employed by hospitals, 10% by local government (i.e., public schools), 10% by nursing homes, and 10% by offices of physicians. Inverse staffing patterns identify the industries currently employing this occupation, including those which are likely to be hiring due to growth or displacing workers due to contraction. See also Staffing Pattern.
