Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As part of a Center for Economic Studies (CES) research program, the Census Bureau is releasing detailed sub-state tabulations by demographic characteristics of OPM-covered employment and earnings, as Quarterly Workforce Indicators for OPM (QWI-OPM). The new Quarterly Workforce Indicators for OPM (QWI-OPM) are released to a wider audience to obtain feedback prior to a full release. Only data for a select number of states  are available. More complete information on this data release is available at the Census Bureau's LEHD program website at http://lehd.ces.census.gov/led/doc/PressRelease202012Q2beta1.pdf.

The data are in the same format as regular QWI, and can be downloaded from http://www.vrdc.cornell.edu/qwipu-opm/beta1/ in state-specific folders. Information on compression and data formats are available. The data are also available on the SSG compute nodes, at /data/clean/qwi-opm. Accounts on the SSG can be requested at http://www2.vrdc.cornell.edu/news/social-science-gateway/step-1-requesting-a-ssg-account/.
