Census data (United States)

Summary

In the United States, the census provides a wealth of data. Three key data repositories are highlighted:
- On The Map - "The Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) program is part of the Center for Economic Studies at the U.S. Census Bureau. 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."
