Business Reference: Beta Release of Workforce Statistics Analysis Tool from U.S. Census
From the United States Census:
The U.S. Census Bureau is unveiling a new Web-based analysis tool that provides access to the full Quarterly Workforce Indicators dataset.
The tool – named QWI Explorer – includes measures on employment, job creation and destruction, hires and wages from the Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics program.
QWI Explorer allows users to compare, rank and aggregate indicators across time, geography and/or firm and worker characteristics. Potential analyses include a look over time at wages by worker sex and age across counties, ranking job creation rates of young firms across NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) groups, and comparing hiring levels by worker race and education levels across a selection of metropolitan areas.
More information about this new tool is available here. A video tutorial is also available.
