Local Employment Dynamics
Local Employment Dynamics: Local Employment Dynamics (LED) is a partnership between the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau to develop information about local workforce and labor market conditions. This information is built from sources that cover more than 90% of total wage and salary civilian jobs, primarily state and federal administrative records. Exclusions to this coverage include federal government workers, agricultural workers, domestic workers, and the self-employed.
OnTheMap (OTM) Version 6 provides detailed maps showing where people work and where workers live with companion reports on worker ages, earnings, industry distribution, and local workforce indicators.
Inflow/Outflow Analysis shows the count and characteristics of worker flows into, out of, and within the selected study area.
Oklahoma's QWI Explorer:
In today’s fast-paced global economy, the demand for detailed and timely labor market data is increasing. State and local officials in particular need good local-level data in order to make informed decisions. The Census/State partnership works to fill this critical need. The LED program within the U.S. Census Bureau uses collaborations between state and federal agencies to bring together data sets in powerful relational databases. The end result is a unique tool, the QWI Explorer. The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission is a proud partner in this effort.
This tool provides an easy-to-use online interface for downloading raw data files. By stepping through a series of simple query-building tabs, users can select the precise variables and detailed characteristics they desire. LED data users will access raw data downloads in comma-separated value (CSV) or zipped CSV formats.
