Description: Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) is an innovative program within the U.S. Census Bureau which uses modern statistical and computing techniques to combine federal and state administrative data on employers and employees with core Census Bureau surveys while protecting the confidentiality of people and firms that provide the data.

Population: Data from Census Bureau merged with state-reported unemployment and business-establishment records (all 50 states are currently in LED partnership as of 2010).

Periodicity: Data started being collected in 1998-1999. States supply quarterly data each year.
