LED Webinar: Providing Perspective During COVID-19 Using Census Data

1:30 pm EDT
Webinar

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomes Cameron Macht as he presents, “Providing Perspective during Covid-19 Using Census Data.” The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented changes across all industries, but has also hit some sectors harder than others. In addition to new data coming out, data can provide useful perspective on who has been and will be more impacted by the economic changes. Minnesota’s Labor Market Information office has used the U.S. Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) data to supplement information provided in a set of regional industry profiles, racial disparities reports, and other context-setting pieces that are helping our economic and workforce development partners prepare for and respond to the recovery. This presentation will also illustrate how LEHD data was used to create a Tableau visualization that displays race and ethnicity data in a useful manner.

Presenter:
Cameron Macht, Regional Analysis and Outreach Manager, Acting Assistant LMI Director, Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development (DEED)
