How does employment status in the U.S. change with age?



Data Notes

Happy Labor Day! Last year, I created a graphic showing the employment status of Americans by age using data published by the American Community Survey. Since then, new data has been published for the Census Bureau so I updated my initial visualization.
I used the 2016 One Year Estimates Public Use Microdata Sample to create this visualization. The data can be found on the ACS Website. I then utilized Tableau to visualize the data.
