Version V1

This study provides organizational information about 53 employment security agencies in the United States responsible for administering unemployment insurance and providing public employment services in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Data regarding the agencies' central offices, divisions, and local branches were collected at the central headquarters in each state. The variables cover the major characteristics of the agencies: the division of labor, levels of structure, routinization of roles, decentralization of authority, and the administrative practices in each agency.
