U.S. Census Bureau Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics


This web-based mapping and reporting application is used to illustrate where workers are employed and where they live. The application is paired with reports on age, earnings, industry distributions, race, ethnicity, educational attainment, and gender, while the tool itself features comprehensive block-level coverage for home and work areas, six powerful analysis tools, user-created outputs, and easy-to-use online documentation. OnTheMap for Emergency Management, an offshoot of this application, provides an intuitive interface for accessing U.S. population and workforce statistics, in real time, for areas affected by natural disasters.

  • Find and use six analysis tools to compare and summarize data for user-defined or Census areas through interactive maps, charts, and reports
