Local Employment Dynamics

New time series data created under the federal-state Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership provide details about America's jobs, workers, and local economies and communities. LED creatively integrates existing data from state-supplied administrative records on workers and employers with existing censuses, surveys, and other administrative records. State-of-the-art methods to protect the confidentiality of the original respondents allow LED to release valid data for local or regional areas beyond traditional boundaries for public use on the Internet. LED data is available down to the block group, but because raw data is provided on a voluntary basis, state by state, the availability of data for various geographies varies greatly.
