Mon Jan 06 2014

Component ID: #ti822895520

The Census Bureau has updated the popular OnTheMap tool. Now you can find firm-level statistics, such as firm age and firm size. A product of the Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) program, these statistics allow policymakers, academics, and economic development and transportation analysts to measure the economic impact of young/old firms or small/large firms in relation to commuting patterns and worker characteristics.

OnTheMap is a Web-based mapping and reporting application that allows creating, viewing, printing, and downloading workforce related maps, profiles and underlying data. This innovative tool provides an interactive map viewer that displays employment and residential distributions by the geography you select, available to the census block level. Companion reports provide statistics on employment counts by worker age, earnings, industry, race, ethnicity, educational attainment and sex.

In addition to this new labor force information, you will also see changes to the PDF report output. This complete redesign for each analysis type provides a publication-quality document.  Map, chart, and table elements now appear as full-size, high-quality graphics that are organized in a consistent layout.
