CREC Attends LED Conference in Washington D.C.

June 24, 2015

Jennie Allison and Lindsay Johnson attended the 16th Annual Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership Workshop hosted by the U.S. Census Bureau in Washington D.C. The Workshop included presentations on how researchers are applying LED data to their work in data visualization and community, economic, and workforce development.

The Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership is a voluntary federal-state partnership that was started in 1999. Its main purpose is to merge data from workers with data from employers to produce a collection of enhanced labor market statistics known collectively as Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI), subject to strict protection of the identity and confidentiality of the individual respondents.
