 2017 Rhode Island Affirmative Action Data

The Equal Employment Opportunity tables in this report were prepared using the US Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year Estimates and 5-Year Estimates. The Labor Market Information Unit of the Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training has the responsibility for formatting the data to meet the US Census labor force data requirements for an Affirmative Action Plan. Labor force data reflect only the civilian population (military is excluded) 16 years of age and above.

Occupations are based on the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system, which includes 23 major groups. This classification system categorizes occupations according to the nature of the work performed and relates these occupations to others of a similar nature. Because the military is not included, twenty-two major SOC groups are presented in this report.

Additional information can be found at www.census.gov. Estimates may not add to the total due to rounding. Town Population Estimates and Demographics are from ACS 5-Year Estimates, while Occupational Groups, Labor Force data and Rhode Island Population data are from the ACS 1-Year Estimates.
