EEO Data Collection

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) processes employer information data that are used by the EEOC to investigate charges of discrimination against private employers, local referral unions, State and local governments and public elementary and secondary school systems or districts. The reports require information on employment status by sex and race/ethnicity. The EEOC collects workforce data from employers with more than 100 employees (lower thresholds apply to federal contractors). Employers meeting the reporting thresholds have a legal obligation to provide the data; it is not voluntary. The data are used for a variety of purposes including enforcement, self-assessment by employers, and research. Each of the reports collects data about sex and race/ethnicity by some type of job grouping. This information is shared with other authorized federal agencies in order to avoid duplicate collection of data and reduce the burden placed on employers. Although the data is confidential, aggregated data are available to the public.

About EEOC

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.

Most employers with at least 15 employees are covered by EEOC laws (20 employees in age discrimination cases). Most labor unions and employment agencies are also covered.

The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.

EEOC carries out their work through their headquarters offices in Washington, D.C. and through 53 field offices serving every part of the nation.
