About the Agency


The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) measures labor market activity, working conditions, price changes, and productivity in the U.S. economy to support public and private decision making. The BLS strives to be a gold-standard source of data and analyses. BLS is responsible for protecting the confidentiality of its survey respondents. For this reason, prospective researchers commit to exclusively statistical uses of the data and data confidentiality must be considered before they are permitted access to BLS restricted data.

BLS allows eligible researchers the opportunity to gain access to restricted data files for select statistical research projects onsite at the BLS national office in Washington, DC, at Federal Statistical Research Data Centers (FSRDCs), and through a secure virtual data access platform. For more information about all these options, please see the BLS Restricted Data Access pages on the BLS website. A complete list of all BLS data available for research use and eligibility requirements can also be found on the BLS website. Your mode of access will depend on the BLS data your research requires.

BLS makes extensive public data available through online data series, data tables, data profiles, maps, data calculators, data finders, and public use microdata files. For more information about these options, please see the Data Tools page on the BLS website.

For questions about the application process, please contact RDA_admin@bls.gov. For questions about the data or technical requirements of the application, please contact RDA_data_questions@bls.gov.
