EEO Reports / Surveys

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 is collected using the reports below and is used for a variety of purposes including enforcement, self-assessment by employers, and research. Each of the reports collects data about gender 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 is available to the public.

EEO-1 Component 1 Report

The 2019 EEO-1 survey is not yet opened.

UPDATE:  In light of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency, and consistent with delays in Federal reporting requirements across the government and other actions taken to relieve employers of unnecessary burdens during this crisis, the Commission has delayed the opening of the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection to a time when the agency anticipates that filers will have resumed more normal operations.  See May 8, 2020 Federal Register Notice Delay in Opening of 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 and 2020 EEO-3 and 2020 EEO-5 Data Collections due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Public Health Emergency

The EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection is currently waiting authorization from OMB.  The EEOC has decided that any EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection that occurs will not take place until 2021.  The EEOC expects to begin collecting the 2019 EEO-1 Component 1 along with the 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 in March 2021 and will notify filers of the precise date the surveys will open as soon as it is available. 

The opening of the 2019 and 2020 EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collections, as well as the new deadline date, will be announced by posting a notice on the EEOC home page at www.eeoc.gov and sending a notification letter to eligible EEO-1 filers.  When the collections open, the EEOC will provide online resources to assist filers with their submissions and the EEOC Employer Data Team Helpdesk will be available to respond to filer inquiries and to provide additional filing assistance (including, for example, guidance on processing mergers and acquisitions and other corporate changes).

The 2018 Component 1 EEO-1 survey is closed. The deadline to submit EEO-1 data was May 31, 2019.  Findings from that survey year can be found here: https://www.eeoc.gov/statistics/employment/jobpatterns/eeo1/2018.
