Census Bureau Statistics in Action: Local Employment Dynamics Partnership Workshop

Written by:

“National Perspective, Local Data” is the theme for the 2016 Local Employment Dynamics Partnership Annual Workshop to be hosted by the U.S. Census Bureau March 7-8, in Washington, D.C. The workshop will feature several sessions using the latest local employment dynamics data products including Job-to-Job Flows, a set of new statistics on worker flows across jobs. Topics range from the competitiveness of the Michigan construction industry, to gentrification in Portland, Ore., neighborhoods, to the local economic impact of building stadiums and sports arenas.

The workshop brings together key stakeholders, including state labor market information directors, data analysts and data providers at state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses and other data users of local employment dynamics data products. Researchers will discuss the latest product enhancements to discover how their peers are using the data to learn about the research that will shape future improvements. The workshop also features smaller group training sessions to introduce new users to the data.

Keynote speakers at this year’s workshop are DJ Patil, the first U.S. chief data scientist, and Sandra Black, a member of the Council of Economic Advisers. Other highlights of the workshop include a demonstration of Census Business Builder, a segment on the 2020 Census, work from the American Community Survey and the economic census, and an opportunity to view data tools from other federal agencies that use Census Bureau data.

The Local Employment Dynamics program is a collaborative data-sharing partnership between state data agencies and the Census Bureau with the goal of using existing data to produce new statistics on the U.S. economy. Each year the Census Bureau hosts this workshop for their partners and the public. Now in its 17th year, this workshop has been a key component in strengthening the voluntary partnership and updating the public on the availability of new statistics.

Here is a snapshot of the Census Bureau data products and tools that will be highlighted during the conference:
