Workforce Demographics – by Residence and Job Location
This exciting NEW data from the Census’ Longitudinal Employer – Household Dynamics (LEHD) can provide you with information on the demographics (earnings, education, race, and age) of working people who live in a particular area vs. the demographics of the people who work in that area. For example, did you know that?
- Over 50% of the people who work in Miami earn over $40,000 per year in their primary job, compared to only 30.56% of the workers who live in Miami.
- Of the 5 largest cities in the country – New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia – Philadelphia has the highest rate of females who work in the City (53%).
- And, in those same 5 cities, Los Angeles has the highest percentage of workers who live within the City who don’t have a high school diploma.
This data is used by local economic development agencies across the country to create workforce investment strategies, stay on top of demographic and economic trends in their communities and even understand the impact of taxes on residents vs. workers in an area.
