New employment data tool from the U.S. Census

The Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) and Local Employment Dynamic (LED) data sources provided by the U.S. Census Bureau are new ways to get customized and current data on the U.S. workforce. The data includes Quarterly Workforce Indicators and Industry Focus , and a web-based mapping program called On the Map.

Not all states are participating in this program, New York being one that is not. But most states are, and the data available should prove very useful to economists, business planners, and others.

You'll find a link to these services on the "Statistics" page of both "Economics" and "Business" subject pages on the library web site.
