Minding Our P's and Q's: Using LODES Data to Explore the Impact of the CARES Act Pandemic Relief Programs

Description

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 Curtis Askew as he presents, “Minding Our P's and Q's: Using LODES Data to Explore the Impact of the CARES Act Pandemic Relief Programs.” Early scholarship on the pandemic relief programs created by the CARES Act were limited by a lack of geographic specificity and by a tendency to narrowly define “impact”. Using 13 million address‐level geocoded transactions linked to the LEHD (https://lehd.ces.census.gov/) Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) data, this presentation illustrates how increased granularity not only provides a more nuanced interpretation of impact, but more actionable information for local decision‐makers.
