The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomes Pramod Sambidi as he presents, “Analyzing Job-to-Job Flows in the Houston Metropolitan Area Using LEHD J2J Data.” The Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) Job-to-Job Flows data set provides new insights to the changing demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of a region’s population. By identifying the demographics of workers moving in and out of the Houston metropolitan area, as well as the origin-destination information on location and industry sector changes, regional planners can better predict migration scenarios and employment structures.
