Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (ICPSR 36543)
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 public-use information combining federal, state and Census Bureau data on employers and employees under the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership. The LED Partnership works to provide economic indicators needed by state and local authorities.
LEHD provides access to the LED Extraction Tool which allows user to custom query data by firm characteristics. For research related to the arts, users can custom query the subset of data for firms considered part of the "Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation" industry.
The LEHD mission is to provide new dynamic information on workers, employers, and jobs with state-of-the-art confidentiality protections and no additional data collection burden. See this one-page document on LED for more information.
These data are not available from NADAC. Users should consult the data owners directly (via Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics) for details on obtaining these resources.
