About the Metro Area Profiles

These metro area profiles were developed using data from the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) program, a voluntary partnership between state labor market information agencies and the U.S. Census Bureau. The purpose of LED is to develop new information about local labor market conditions at low cost, with no added respondent burden, and with the same confidentiality protections afforded census and survey data. Almost all the states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands participate in this voluntary partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau to produce new data on jobs to assist in workforce and economic development, emergency preparedness and response, and transportation planning, covering up to 150 million current workers and 190 million current jobs in the United States.

LED creatively integrates existing data from state-supplied administrative records on workers and employers with existing censuses, surveys and other administrative records. The time series data created under the federal LED Partnership provide unprecedented details about America's jobs, workers, and local economies and communities.
