FAQ

Can I get information on local labor markets from the Census Bureau?

The Census Bureau's Local Employment Dynamics partnership produces several longitudinal datasets that provide a detailed picture of the labor market in partner states. The Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI)  dataset provides indicators such as employment, hires, job creation/destruction, turnover, and earnings for a wide variety of geographies and firm and worker characteristics. The LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) dataset provides block-level employment counts showing where people work and where workers live, as well as detailed firm and worker characteristics breakouts.

Other LEHD online tools available:

The Decennial Census and American Community Survey (ACS) also collect data directly from respondents on employment, occupation, and earnings. Users also should check with the Bureau of Labor Statistics This link to a non-federal Web site does not imply endorsement of any particular product, company, or content.
