Our mission is to create and make accessible novel data on the dynamics of the labor markets, we work with research networks and statistical agencies, developing appropriate statistics to inform policy makers, researchers, and simply people seeking knowledge. We emphasize and meet the requirements of stakeholders: users as well as providers, balancing the utility of the data with the confidentiality of the people and businesses whose activities the data describe.

The Labor Dynamics Institute and partners have embarked on a number of projects as part of the NSF-Census Research Network. Our node's research focuses on data curation and metadata exploration models in the presence of distributed (and secure) curation of confidential data, and on new models using computational statistics algorithms based on boosting to improve the integration, editing, and imputation models that assemble the micro-data used in the Census Bureau's longitudinally linked employer-employee database.
