EEO-4 (State and Local Government Information Report) Statistics

Introductory Note

The State and Local Government Information Report (EEO-4), also referred to as the EEO-4 Report, is a mandatory biennial data collection that requires all state  and local governments with 100 or more employees to submit workforce demographic data including data by race/ethnicity, sex, job category, and salary band. The filing by eligible state and local governments is required under section 709(c) of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), 29 CFR 1602.30 and .32-.37.  

The confidentiality provision (section 709(e) of Title VII) governing the release of data prohibits release of individually identifiable information.  EEOC Explore provides aggregate-level data in a manner that does not identify a particular employer or entity or reveal an individual employee’s personal information. Additionally, confidential information is protected from disclosure by a series of statistical disclosure limitation activities. As a result, public use files contain details of aggregate employment characteristics only when they will not identify any employer or employee.
