First Quarterly Workforce Indicators for Puerto Rico Provide Demographic Portrait of Island’s Employment Trends

First Quarterly Workforce Indicators for Puerto Rico Provide Demographic Portrait of Island’s Employment Trends

Description

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomes Moises Yi as he presents, “Puerto Rico Employment Trends after Hurricane Maria: Evidence from the New Puerto Rico QWI.” In late September, the U.S. Census Bureau released the first Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI) for Puerto Rico, providing rich demographic profiles of the island’s employment. According to Yi’s findings, the youngest and oldest workers drove Puerto Rico’s employment recovery after Hurricane Maria devastated the island five years ago. This research looks at the recovery through 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic affected employment across the nation.
