Census Bureau Releases EEO Data Regarding U.S. Labor Force Demographics
From the Nov. 29, 2012, Daily Labor Report:
The U.S. Census Bureau today began releasing its equal employment opportunity tabulation, a set of 107 tables describing the U.S. labor force, broken down by sex, race, and ethnicity, and searchable by geographic location, occupation, and other variables.
The data, which are based on the bureau's American Community Survey for 2006 through 2010, were compiled by Census at the request of four “sponsoring agencies,” the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Labor Department's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the Office of Personnel Management, and the Justice Department Civil Rights Division's Employment Litigation Section.
Since the 1970s, Census has produced an EEO tabulation about every 10 years after conducting the decennial census. The most recent tabulation, then called the EEO special file, was released in December 2003.
