New Occupational Licensing Dashboard launched
The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis Community Development and Engagement Division has launched an Occupational Licensing Dashboard depicting the prevalence of licensure across all 50 states and over 100 occupations. The dashboard uses data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys. The dashboard shows, per occupation, what percentage of total licensed employment the occupation accounts for, broken down by state and in comparison to national estimates. The dashboard also shows worker demographics such as sex, race, and foreign-born status.
