U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

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.

Office of Management and Budget, et al., Civil Action No. 17-cv-2458 (D.D.C.).  Please note: Although the Department of Justice filed a Notice of Appeal in this lawsuit, that notice does not stay the district court orders or alter EEO-1 filers' obligations to submit 2017 and 2018 Component 2 data by September 30, 2019.

The EEOC has contracted with NORC at the University of Chicago to collect the Component 2 data for 2017 and 2018.  Employers can find more information about the Component 2 EEO-1 Pay Data Collection here:
