What is the Employment Status of Americans? Visualized by Age



Mobile Users: If you are having issues using the interactive version of this visualization, you can find a static version of it here.

Data Notes

Last year, I created a graphic showing the employment status of Americans by age using data published by the American Community Survey. Since then, new data has been published for the Census Bureau so I updated my initial visualization.
I used the 2015 One Year Estimates Public Use Microdata Sample to create this visualization. The data can be found on the ACS Website. I then utilized Tableau to visualize the data.
