July 27, 2022 — The U.S. Census Bureau today released a new report, Occupations, Earnings, and Job Characteristics, that highlights the features of U.S. workers and their employment conditions.
The report uses data from the 2018 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) and the 2018 American Community Survey (ACS) one-year estimates to describe workers’ occupations, schedule arrangements, median earnings and earnings arrangements, and coverage through employer-provided health insurance. The sample consists of the civilian, noninstitutionalized population age 16 or older working in at least one job.
Data Highlights From the 2018 SIPP (unless otherwise noted):
The SIPP is a nationally representative longitudinal survey administered by the Census Bureau that provides comprehensive information on the dynamics of income, employment, household composition and government program participation. For more information, visit <www.census.gov/sipp>.
The ACS is a nationwide survey designed to provide timely and reliable data every year on the demographic, social, economic and housing characteristics of the nation, states, counties and other localities.
