EPI Launches State of Working America Data Library

The Economic Policy Institute (EPI) released the State of Working America Data Library, which provides researchers, media, and the public with easily accessible, up-to-date, and comprehensive historical data on the American labor force. Compiled from EPI analysis of government data sources, the Data Library provides a clearinghouse of EPI’s best data to help people interested in the labor force answer questions, ask new ones, and find solutions. Use it to research wages, inequality, and other economic indicators over time and among demographic groups. Data sets can be accessed based on employment status, wages, and wage gaps based on various demographic criteria.
