Longitudinal Employment and Household Dynamics (LEHD)

PDF files can be viewed with the Acrobat® Reader®

The Longitudinal Employment and Household Dynamics (LEHD) program is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. LEHD is potentially an alternate/additional source of place of work and flow data. LEHD links State Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) with federal administrative records. We encourage the transportation community to evaluate these data at small geography and identify problem areas and approaches to improve data quality.

Some examples of currently available data from LEHD include:

LEHD expects to build linkages between employer-employee data sets and others to trace job patterns for various populations.
