Keystone Statistics Dashboard (KeyStats)

The Keystone Statistics (KeyStats) Dashboard presents a variety of key economic indicators for Pennsylvania and the United States. The dashboard is separated into two sections, with the first having a focus on employment data between the state and the nation as well as GDP and federal interest rates. The second section solely focuses on macroeconomic data for the United States such as consumption, production, and housing investment statistics. This KeyStats dashboard is best used as a visual one stop shop for data that can be used to gain insight into how our economy is doing. Most of the data is updated on a monthly basis with the exception of a few quarterly indicators.

Worker Movement by Industry

From year to year employees can stay with the same employer, stay employed in the same industry but with a different employer, find employment in a different industry, or no longer have a record of employment. For each industry these movements are tracked to see how many workers fall into each of these four categories. Similarly, for each year, the same is done for each worker to see what industry and employer (or lack of) they came from. In this way a pattern of movement can be determined for each industry. Some industries have little movement, meaning workers remain employed in the industry from one year to the next. Other industries have a high degree of industry churn. This dataset pinpoints the industries workers come from or go to, which can be useful to determine those industries that feed into a particular industry or the industries workers are leaving an industry for. The worker movement by industry dashboard is a visual display of these movements.

Pennsylvania’s Economic Portrait (PEP)

Are you looking for a long-term visual review of our data? How about a visual one stop shop for several of our indicators detailing the long-term health of the employed and the unemployed? Great news we have the spot for you. Click the link above and you will see the latest visual dashboard out of CWIA. The PEP showcases unemployment compensation data, labor force data, current employment statistics data and our quarterly census of employment and wages data. As you navigate you will see that there are a plethora of ways to filter the data by industry, by demographics, by area.

Industries of Interest (IOI)

The Industries of Interest (IOI) Interactive Dashboard presents IOI data at the county level. Due to the small number of establishments or dominance of single establishments in some of the industry employment lines, only percentages are shown. You can choose one county by clicking on the map or choose multiple counties using the drop-down menu. You can also specify what industry code(s) to display.

Industries of Interest (IOI) by New Hires

The Industries of Interest (IOI) by New Hires Interactive Dashboard presents IOI data at the statewide, 6-digit NAICS level. The New Hires reporting program shows industries that are hiring for the most recent quarter, and can be used to determine emerging or declining industries. All quarters of IOI data are included back to 2010q1. You can also specify what industry code(s) to display. Finally, you can choose and display more than one industry and more than one quarter for quick comparison, or choose by one or more categories, i.e., LT growth, growth, LT decline and decline.

Industries of Interest (IOI) – QCEW- Historical

Historical Industries of Interest show the history for all industries, whether or not an industry was found to be an IOI. Solely looking at the quarterly IOI data found in the Industries of Interest Dashboard below, while valuable, does not show at what point in the trend the industry is positioned – it could be starting a new trend, in the middle of an existing one or at the end of a trend. From an analytical perspective, it is often missed when a trend is established, or when turning points occur because only the most recent point in time is observed. This historical dashboard will help data users see where the “action” is taking place, giving them additional perspective.

Unemployment Compensation Claims

The Unemployment Compensation Claims Dashboard provides an interactive look at the reports located on our PA Unemployment Compensation Activity page. The dashboard allows you to select a week ending date, the type of claim (initial or continued), and an area (county or statewide) A breakdown of claims based on age group, gender, race/ethnicity, and industry sector will then be displayed.

Areas of Interest (AOI)

The Areas of Interest (AOI) identifies and highlights sub-county areas that exhibit nontrivial growth or decline in employment. Typically, employment analysis focuses on industry and occupation, leading workforce developers to steer job seekers toward growing industries and occupations and away from declining ones. Expanding employment analysis to areas gives workforce developers an additional dataset to consider when working with job seekers. Similarly, economic developers can identify regions experiencing employment growth to build upon such growth, or employment decline to implement intervention strategies.

Areas which experience at least five percent year-over-year employment growth accompanied by an employment gain of at least 25 are considered growing AOI. Similarly, the criteria for declining AOI are at least a five percent year-over-year employment decline accompanied by a decrease in employment of at least 25. When in addition, if the area sustains four consecutive quarters of over the year employment growth or decline per quarter, then it is termed a Long-Term-Growth or Long-Term-Decline area.

Areas of Interest is generated from the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) dataset. Data in this dashboard are not comparable to any other Quarterly Census of Employment Wages data or report. Non-economic coding changes (e.g., correcting an employer’s location) could impact the employment level of sub-county areas or falsely identifying an area as an AOI when it isn’t, or not identifying it as one when in fact it is.

County Statistics

The County Statistics Interactive Dashboard allows the user to select a county via a map and view the annual percentage of population age 16+ in the labor force by age group for that county compared to the state. The annual labor force participation rate by age group is also included.

Labor Force Statistics

The Labor Force Statistics Interactive Dashboard is six dashboards in one. You can navigate through the various dashboards by clicking on the labeled tabs at the top. The first two tabs provide insight into the labor force for Pennsylvania (PA) and its two components (employment and unemployment). The third tab provides a comparison of PA’s unemployment rate to that of its neighboring states. The last three tabs display the current county unemployment rates, over-the-month changes, and greater than/less than the state comparisons.

Online Job Postings by Workforce Development Area

This dataset aggregates online job postings by Workforce Development Area (WDA) by several different categories, including Growing Industries, Growing Occupations, Job Type, Major Groups, Occupations by Industry, Top Certifications, Top Cities, Top Employers, Top Industries, and Top Occupations. To view a specific category, simply select the tab of the specification you’re interested in along the top of the page. To view the information of a specific WDA, use the drop-down box right below the category tabs and select the WDA(s) you’d like to view and/or compare.
