Natural disaster assessments rarely include a consideration of disruptions and impacts to the labor market. This Webinar will demonstrate a step-by-step method for using the Census Bureau’s OnTheMap (OTM) Web application to study labor market characteristics in disaster-impacted areas. The presenters will also discuss use of the OTM area profile and labor shed reports to estimate the number of disaster-related unemployment insurance initial claims that may result from a disaster event.
