This is a special tabulation similar to the CTPP, prepared by the Census Bureau using the
decennial census long form data. It is paid for by a consortium of four Federal agencies,
consisting of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of
Justice (DOJ), the Department of Labor (DOL), and the Office of Personnel Management

The EEO tabulation includes tables by residence, workplace, and by flow between home and
work. However, there are many important differences between the CTPP and the EEO file.
The EEO tabulation has very detailed information on occupations, education, and
industry. The smallest geographic reporting is for places with populations of 50,000 or
The data set consists of 24 separate files. The files are delineated as follows:
· Residence tables: Files 1 through 7. The tabulations are presented for the civilian
labor force 16 years and older
· Flow tables: Files 8 through 19 The tabulations are presented for a central worksite
(county or place of 50,000 or more population) showing the flow to that worksite of
workers from up to nine individual counties, places, or balance of counties. The data are
shown for civilian workers 16 years and older
· Workplace tables: Files 20 through 24 The tabulations are presented for civilian
workers 16 years and older.
Some differences between the CTPP and EEO file are:
1. The EE0 dataset contains much fewer geographic summary levels than CTPP. Moreover,
geography is limited to counties, and places of population 50,000 or more.
2. The EEO dataset provides information only on civilian employment. Civilian Workers
differs from Workers-at-Work in CTPP. CTPP 2000 includes workers in the armed-forces.
3. The EE0 tabulation is based only on the standard coding procedure. For CTPP 2000, two
allocation procedures were applied to improve workplace geocoding to tract and block
4. Only the TOP 9 geographies are shown in the flow tabulation for any geographic summary
level. All the remaining flows are shown in a residual flow category.
5. In addition to rounding, a threshold of 50 is required for any flow to show the records
in the table. Additionally if an individual cell value is less than 3, then it is
