The Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) program produces a unique set of data tools for workforce planning and research.  This Spring the Census Bureau released a beta version of Job-to-Job Flows Explorer, or J2J Explorer - a new web-based analysis tool that allows users to analyze worker reallocation in the United States. This interactive application uses tables, maps and charts to compare, aggregate and analyze flows by worker and firm characteristics. This session walks users through practical examples used to measure job-changing rates. Visit the following link to access the tool and help and documentation, https://j2jexplorer.ces.census.gov/.

Earlene Dowell is a Program Analyst for the Center for Economic Studies’ Longitudinal-Employer Household Dynamics (LEHD) Program at the U.S. Census Bureau. Dowell travels around the nation promoting and training people on LEHD products. LEHD makes available several online applications for dissemination and visualization to the public through Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI), LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) and Job-to-Job (J2J) data sets. These applications include OnTheMap, OnTheMap for Emergency Management, LED Extraction Tool, QWI Explorer, and Job-to-Job Flows Explorer.

Prior to joining the LEHD Program, Dowell played a key role during the 2010 Census in the Public Information Office and taught communication courses at the College of Southern Maryland.  Dowell received her master’s degree in communication and a bachelor’s degree in public relations from Hawaii Pacific University.
