I recommend Occupational Employment Statistics. Includes approximately 800 job categories/titles (Standard Occupational Classification). Reports estimated employment, average wages and 10th/25th/50th/75th/90th wage percentiles. The upside is that it's pretty easy to download or hit the API. The downside is that there are quite a few "holes" in the data, ...

Lots of data from the US Federal "Office of Personnel Management" (OPM). https://www.opm.gov/data/ OPM is the focal point for providing statistical information about the Federal civilian workforce. OPM's FedScope is an online tool which allows customers to access and analyze the most popular data elements from OPM's Enterprise Human Resources Integration ...

Looks like you got it right in your answer. The "data.dol.gov" URLs use the newer Department of Labor API (v2), which sends the Key in the http headers. See the data.dol.gov tab for more information at: http://developer.dol.gov/beginners-guide/ As far as the application name goes when creating a Key/token, you can use whatever you would like -- generally ...

Here is the information you need: http://www.dol.gov/open/xls/IMISCodes.xlsx We will also be updating developer.dol.gov shortly. If you have any more questions about it, please don't hesitate to ask. EDIT 2018-01-29: IMIS Codes live here now

the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics is a good general starting spot for knowing what data is available about veterans. The "reports" page there includes some higher level data about Veteran employment, income, and poverty status. However, this is mostly aggregate and historical data. Generally, the source for monthly employment ...

Is cURL required for downloading data using data.dol.gov? I'm not familiar with the data.dol.gov API, but I can't see how any API can require cURL (a set of libraries for accessing URLs). You should be able to use any code, tool, or widget to generate your request (URL) against the API, and the API will respond accordingly. Will the data.dol.gov API ...

I'm sorry, but we do not provide that data through our API.

Here it is for 2014 (ACS 2014 1-year) from CensusReporter(.org)* by poverty status: http://censusreporter.org/data/table/?table=B17005&geo_ids=01000US,040|01000US&primary_geo_id=01000US More information on this topic can be found from CensusReporter at http://censusreporter.org/topics/employment/ *The data ultimately comes from Census and you can ...

Those datasets were originally set up to support an app challenge targeted specifically at the hospitality, retail, and restaurant industries. The Enforcement Data site's search isn't as limited. We've recently lifted that limitation for Wage & Hour's data. I will be reaching out to the database owner to see if we can do the same with OSHA's.

In July I wrote to BEA with a similar question--getting regional employment and wages by industry. They confirmed that these tables (specifically, I wanted SQ6N, SQ7N, and SA27N) aren't yet available via API. "Later this year, I hope," they said. In the meantime, I've been getting data from BEA's interactive tool and bulk download page (http://www.bea.gov/...

When you connect to an API, you are simply creating long URLs that contain filters, flags and other parameters. So you can test your URL in the browser before using a programming language. In this case, the API documentation is saying that if you provide no format parameter, the default response will be XML. But, if you prefer JSON, you can add a custom ...

You can use the code at http://developer.dol.gov/sdk/ or steal from it.

I've not seen this API before, but I tried some examples. It does not appear the RegionalData dataset has a parameter to breakdown results by industry sector. But you can get results by county by setting the parameter: GeoFIPS=COUNTY . The results look very similar to the IRS Statistics of Income (SOI) datasets. The NIPA dataset does have a parameter for ...

This issue was caused by both a bug and a missing update in the Ruby SDK. It has been fixed now. You can find the updated Ruby SDK at the Ruby_DOLDataSDK Github repo. Also, the sample app code you linked has been updated to remove the API_SECRET parameter. The "shared secret" is no longer necessary. So the updated version of the sample program will now ...

There's a data catalog here: http://ogesdw.dol.gov/views/data_catalogs.php (and go to the Wage and Hour Compliance Action Data page). According to the dictionary, flsa_bw_atp_amt is the "BW Agreed to under FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act)". But it sounds like your question is more about how to get real qualitative information about the data fields. If that ...

Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) data may be of interest. It is a major input to BEA Personal Income. I work for the QCEW program. QCEW provides employment and wage data by industry at the county, MSA, State, and national levels. Go to http://www.bls.gov/cew/opendata.htm to access the open data version of the dataset. Available for 2012-...

At this point, OSHA's regulations are not available through web services. I'll share this suggestion internally with my colleagues in OSHA for consideration.

You need to use the offset filter https://data.dol.gov/get/accident/offset/0/limit/1 will give you the first result https://data.dol.gov/get/accident/offset/1/limit/1 will give you the second result https://data.dol.gov/get/accident/offset/2/limit/1 will give you the third result ...

I had to do some googling around but I think what you're looking for is at http://www1.dol-esa.gov/AgcyData/agencyDataServlet I found the same data at http://www.dol.gov/owcp/dfec/regs/compliance/dfecdd/CMFDataDictionary20091211.html as well.

I'd say the data is for May 2015. Here's a screenshot of why I think this. Now from the FAQ: When will this year's OES estimates be available? Estimates are generally released in late March or early April. Please check the OES homepage around that time for a scheduled release date. The also use the PAST 3 years of data to produce the May 2015 ...

there is a metro area identifier on the ce, but only for the largest ten or so cities.. there probably isn't sample to get any smaller than that; ce should not even be used for state-level statistics. some bls-published msa tables with ce: http://www.bls.gov/cex/csxmsa.htm


2

Yes, it is different, though you can use the same key. At http://developer.dol.gov/beginners-guide, right above the "Accessing the API" heading, are two tabs. One is for api.dol.gov, the other is for data.dol.gov. We'll get the PHP SDK fixed momentarily.

We currently don't have that data available through the API. I will reach out to my ETA (Employment and Training Administration, US Department of Labor) colleagues with your request to have it available through the API.

This isn't an answer, but is too long for a comment. If you just want to dl the data, searching http://data.gov (not dol.gov) for "job titles" or "job title salary" (both without quotes) may be helpful. Some useful links: https://www.data.gov/search-results?group=site&q=job%20titles%20salary https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/title-and-salary-listing ...

I've been compiling datasets related to HR for a while now, and store them on my GitHub repository, not always with all the attribution I should. Another dataset is at Kaggle, and IBM hosts a popular dataset on employee attrition. All these datasets are contrived, fictional, simulated, etc. because HR data is sensitive.

We have a patch sitting in our OCIO's office that will fix the issue with pagination not working. Once it navigates that maze, pagination beyond the first 200 records should work. edit: The fix is in place. We've updated our API documentation as well. We're in the process of updating our dataset documentation as well as the feature is rolled out to all ...

I am trying to find a way to identify the portion of national consumer spending for certain items from households by geographic unit (e.g., by census tract or block group). The Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditures Survey seems fairly promising but I am unfamiliar with this dataset and how to dissect it into granular geographic units. BLS: http://...
