FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  TUESDAY, NOV. 20, 2012

Media Advisory — Census Bureau Webinar to Discuss Equal Employment Opportunity Tabulation that Provides a Profile of America's Workforce

What:

The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar to discuss the upcoming release of the Equal Employment Opportunity Tabulation. This tabulation is produced for the federal agencies responsible for monitoring employment practices and enforcing civil rights laws in the workforce, and for employers so they can measure their compliance with civil right laws and regulations. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Justice, Department of Labor and the Office of Personnel Management sponsored this tabulation.

Previous tabulations were made available every decennial census since 1970. However, this tabulation uses five years of data collected (2006-2010) from the American Community Survey. The latest tabulation highlights the diversity of the labor force (by sex, race, and ethnicity) across several variables, including detailed occupations, industry, earnings, education, citizenship, employment status, age, residence and worksite geographies for the nation, states, metropolitan areas, counties and places. Selected tables will also include county-to-county commuting flows.

Please dial in by phone to listen to a simultaneous audio conference while viewing the online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

When:

Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012; 1 p.m. (EST)

Who:

Jennifer Cheeseman Day, assistant division chief for employment characteristics, Social, Economic and Housing Statistics Division
