I am trying to calculate location quotients for land use. I have the zoning data and have intersected that with my census tracts, but do not know what to do from here. Here is the formula I am using for location quotients.

(Land use in category i census tract/total land use in all categories of census tract)/(land use in category i for all census tracts/total land use in all census tracts.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give!!!
