May 12, 2012   -   STATUS OF THE 2012 EEO SPECIAL FILE

The EEOC has provided this fifth informal update on the status of the American Community Survey (ACS) 2006-2010 Special EEO File (Tabulation) from the Census Bureau. These updates will continue until the EEO File and the American FactFinder (AFF) programs for accessing the data in the File are released.

Please remember that this information is unofficial and will only be finalized when the Census Bureau releases the EEO File and the AFF means for accessing it.

The 2006-2010 Special EEO File will contain - more likely than not - two additional tabulations concerning employment status. That is, for each of the 480 detailed occupations, there will be information on those who are (1) currently employed, (2) currently unemployed but had worked in the last 12 months, and (3) currently unemployed and had not worked within the last one to five years. There will be one tabulation by race, ethnicity and sex and another by seven age groups - starting with the 16 to 40 age group.

The currently anticipated date for the release of the next Special EEO File is December 31, 2012.
