Description: 2 – 3:30 p.m. (EDT) - An ODEP Webinar
On June 6, 2013, the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) will present a webinar with Melissa Chiu of the U.S. Census Bureau discussing the recently released Disability Employment Tabulation 2008-2010. The Disability Employment Tabulation, sponsored by ODEP and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), provides data on disability employment in order to further education, research, and policy initiatives that improve employment opportunities and outcomes for people with disabilities.
The Disability Employment Tabulation uses three years of data (2008-2010) collected from the American Community Survey. The tabulation provides over 1 billion new estimates highlighting the disability status and diversity of the labor force and population 16 and over for more than 4000 unique geographic entities. Tables may include employment status, detailed occupation, occupation groups, educational attainment, age, sex, race, citizenship, and earnings.
The webinar will include a live demonstration showing how to access the data in American FactFinder. Please dial in by phone to listen or the broadcast through your computer speakers to a simultaneous audio conference while viewing the online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
