Webinar: Special Census Bureau ACS Disability Data

On June 6, 2013, from 2- 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, the U.S. Labor Department’s (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) will present a Webinar with Melissa Chiu, Chief of the Industry and Occupation Statistics Branch at the U.S. Census Bureau, discussing the recently-released American Community Survey (ACS) Disability Employment Tabulation 2008-2010. The Disability Employment Tabulation, sponsored by ODEP and DOL’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), provides data on disability employment in order to further education, research, and policy initiatives that improve employment opportunities and outcomes for people with disabilities.

For more information and to register, go to Disability Employment Tabulation Webinar.

The Disability Employment Tabulation uses three years of data (2008-2010) collected from the ACS. The tabulation provides over 1 billion new estimates highlighting the disability status and diversity of the labor force and population 16 and older for more than 4,000 unique geographic entities. Tables include employment status, detailed occupation, occupation groups, educational attainment, age, sex, race, citizenship, and earnings.

The Webinar will include a live demonstration showing how to access the data in American FactFinder, the primary means by which the Census Bureau distributes ACS data. Please dial in by phone or listen through your computer speakers to a simultaneous audio conference while viewing the online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
