[SSG] Limited Availability of R2012Q3 Quarterly Workforce Indicators (beta) for firm age and size with demographics

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Census Bureau has released to the VirtualRDC the R2012Q3 beta release of  Quarterly Workforce Indicator (QWI) files containing augmented tabulations by firm size and by firm age. New in this release is the addition of new tabulation variables: firm age and size are each  interacted with the usual demographics: age and sex ("wia"), race and ethnicity ("rh"), and education and sex ("se") . The time-series is extended to 2011Q4. At present, only users of the SSG compute servers will be able to access the SAS files from the R2012Q3 release at /data/clean/qwipu/state/data.R2012Q3/ in state specific directories. The data are being prepared for web distribution, and an announcement will follow. Firm age and size data for CA, CO, LA, NJ, and RI are not available. WA, previously not available, has now been added (note: with a shorter time series than the regular QWI).

These files are released to garner feedback from users, and certain caveats apply. Beta releases are nearly feature complete, but may not have been created using the final methodology or quality metrics. Please provide the LEHD program and/or us with any feedback you may have on these files.
