Visualizing Home to Work Job Locations and Income Demographics using Census LODES Data in a Web-based Application
July 19 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomes Steven Hossack and Mark Jackman as they present, “Visualizing Home to Work Job Locations and Income Demographics using Census LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) Data in a Web-based Application.” This presentation will provide background information of a web-based geographic tool that assists transportation planners in understanding home/work travel flows and income demographics. Users can easily select origin census blocks, associated job destinations, and job income metrics based on LODES data to be displayed in a map. Using the application, planners can quickly discover travel and job demographic patterns.
