Data for Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity Planning

For demographic data needed to complete Affirmative Action or Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) plans, we recommend using the five-year estimates (2014–2018) from the American Community Survey. The data is available by using the EEO Data Tool on the U.S. Census Bureau's website. From the EEO Data Tool menu, choose the appropriate table and geography type to meet your needs.

The data sets below are available through these direct links:

Disability Characteristics by Age

Limited English Speaking Status

Search for other needed data on the U.S. Census Bureau's website.

Resources for Assistance with Affirmative Action Plans

Compliance assistance with requirements for federal contractors

U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs
(for technical assistance in preparing an Affirmative Action plan)

U.S. Department of Labor guidance on hiring for Affirmative Action

Please note: The source of all data required in Affirmative Action and EEO plans are U.S. Census Bureau data, and as such, the LMIC is not able to answer questions about the data or provide guidance on the completion of those plans. The links above are provided here strictly as a convenience for our labor market information customers.
