Dr. Sambidi will be demonstrating two interactive applications developed by the Houston-Galveston Area Council(H- GAC) to analyze the socioeconomic characteristics of regional workforce and their commute patterns. The H-GAC’s Regional Employment Snapshot Tool uses the Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) Workplace Area Characteristics data to provide a quick summary of key workplace employment characteristics for a user defined geography, while the Commuting Patterns Tool uses the LODES data to illustrate commuting patterns of the Greater Houston area workforce.
