Subject content: The EEO Tabulation is a special tabulation contracted for and paid for by a consortium of four federal agencies. All the specifications on the tabulation are what the consortium requested. The file differs from those released from previous censuses. The tabulation consists of occupation and educational attainment information for 24 data sets made up of residential data, residence to worksite flow data, and worksite data. Particularly noteworthy are data on occupation by age, occupation by industry, and occupation by earnings. The tabulation shows data for 471 census occupations, 268 Office of Personnel Management occupations, and 8 state and local government occupational categories.

Tables are shown for the following groups:

  • Total Population

For detailed information on content see "Things to Know Before Using the Special EEO Tabulation."[PDF] Please note that the table totals are the total of unrounded data that is then rounded. Consequently, if you add the rounded data in a particular row, it probably will not equal the total on the file. There are no subtotals in the tables on the CD-ROM.

Geography: United States, states, and the District of Columbia, counties and county sets, metropolitan areas, and places of 50,000 or more persons. The file has data for minor civil divisions of 50,000 or more person in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. The levels of geography depend on the amount of detail. Due to previous disclosure problems, the more detailed the data sets, the larger the geography.

File format & software: The EEO File CD-ROM has data files only in SAS version 8.2 format or in zipped ASCII format. It does not include tables or software to help the user access the files. The user must know how to program or convert SAS or ASCII files into a usable format. The Census Bureau does not offer computer support in downloading the ASCII or SAS files and using them in a data base application.
