What is "OnTheMap"?
OnTheMap, a web-based mapping and reporting application, shows where people work and where workers live. It also provides companion reports on age, earnings, industry distributions, and local workforce indicators.
OnTheMap provides an easy-to-use interface for creating, viewing, printing and downloading residence and workforce related maps, profiles, and underlying data. Based on annual worker origin and destination data and the Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI) profile data files, OnTheMap is a unique resource for mapping the travel patterns of workers and identifying small-area workforce characteristics.

The data used in this application are derived from payroll tax (Unemployment Insurance) payment records maintained by each state. The states assign employer locations, while workers' home locations are assigned by the Census Bureau using data from multiple Federal agencies. Age, earnings, and industry profiles are compiled by the Census Bureau from a state's records and are supplemented with other Census Bureau source data. Final compilations and confidentiality modeling is performed by the Census Bureau.
