If you have an in-depth understanding of which industries are most affected, it seems to be accounting and finance, then real estate and real estate business, then gardeners, and then businessmen. The remaining categories appear to be unaffected by this local update.
Google hasn’t confirmed the update yet, someone asked if this is related to June 2021 core update -But I think this is unlikely.

The owner of Places Scout said: “I have seen a few cases where companies farther from the center (10+mi) now rank keywords after the update. They did not rank before. Not sure if they did a smaller Proximity adjustment, or if it’s an adjustment to better match the business to the keywords. More digging is needed.”
Have you noticed the changes in Google’s local rankings around these dates?
