The LEHD program produces new, cost effective, public-use information combining federal, state and Census Bureau data on employers and employees under the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership. State and local authorities increasingly need detailed local information about their economies to make informed decisions. The LED Partnership works to fill critical data gaps and provide indicators needed by state and local authorities. Data from the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership provide unprecedented details about America's jobs, workers, and local economies and communities. LED integrates existing data from state-supplied administrative records on workers and employers with existing censuses, surveys, and other administrative records to create a longitudinal data system on U.S. employment. State-of-the-art methods to protect the confidentiality of the original respondents allow LED to release data for local and regional areas beyond traditional boundaries for public use on the Internet.
