Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Tabulation

The EEO Tabulation is a custom tabulation of data from the American Community Survey (2006-2010 5-Year Estimates) that is designed to measure the effects of and compliance with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws. It serves as the primary external benchmark for comparing the race, ethnicity, and sex composition of an organization's internal workforce, to the analogous external labor market, within a specified geography and occupation.

The tables include estimates and margins of error of the race, ethnicity and sex composition of the workforce for specified occupations and geographies. Occupation data are provided in Detailed Census Occupations, and in 4 aggregations— EEO Occupational Groups, EEO-1 Job Categories, Federal Sector Job Groups, and State and Local Government Job Groups. Other subject matter characteristics include U.S. citizenship, educational attainment, age, industry, earnings, and unemployment status. The EEO provides information at three geographic types - worksite, residence-to-worksite commuting flows, and residence.





The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Tabulation is a custom product sponsored by a consortium of four Federal agencies, consisting of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Employment Litigation Section of the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) at the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), and developed in conjunction with the U.S. Census Bureau.
