Census Bureau Releases Quarterly Workforce Indicators and Job to Job Flows
The Quarterly Workforce Indicators are a set of 32 economic indicators including employment, job creation/destruction, wages, hires, and other measures of employment flows. The QWI are reported based on detailed firm characteristics (geography, industry, age, size) and worker demographics (sex, age, education, race, ethnicity) and are available tabulated to national, state, metropolitan/micropolitan areas, and county.
The QWI are unique in their ability to track both firm and worker characteristics over time - enabling analyses such as a longitudinal look at wages by worker sex and age across counties, ranking job creation rates of young firms across NAICS industry groups, and comparing hiring levels by worker race and education levels across a selection of metropolitan areas.
On February 7, the Census Bureau completed the Quarter 4 2018 release of Quarterly Workforce Indicators data for all states.
