Posted By briana On January 10, 2011 @ 7:06 am In Data Tools | 1 Comment
In a world of economic uncertainties, innovative products from the U.S. Census Bureau help job seekers, employers and economic planners get an in-depth look at their local job market. OnTheMap  is an interactive mapping tool that allows both novice and experienced computer users to create, print and download workforce related maps, charts, profiles and reports.
The U.S. Census Bureau recently released Version 5  of this online mapping tool. It includes a number of important new features and enhancements including: the addition of data for Connecticut, new analysis types (including Area Comparison, Destination, Distance/Direction, and Inflow/Outflow) and a redesigned user interface with a dashboard layout.
OnTheMap data can help you analyze the concentration of workers in a selected area and provides comparisons of employment areas by workers’ residences, ages and monthly earnings. This easy-to-use online interface has several different types of analyses that provide a wide variety of results.
OnTheMap Version 5 can be accessed by selecting “Local Employment Dynamics” at http://www.census.gov  and then OnTheMap under Quick Links, or directly at http://lehdmap.did.census.gov.  Data is available for all states except Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
