The charts featured in this snapshot are a product of EImpact, a software company that communicates economic and labor market data, in addition to customized internal visualizations. EImpact’s data is largely sourced from Lightcast, formerly known as EMSI Burning Glass, in addition to data from Zillow, US Census Reporter, Neighborhood Scout, Porch, and American Community Survey. Lightcast integrates data from government sources (for instance, Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Census Bureau, etc.), which are estimates based on survey data reported by public agencies. Lightcast’s figures may differ slightly from web queries due to proprietary analytics. For instance, Lightcast may integrate multiple sources for one indicator, or estimate data points that may be otherwise suppressed for privacy purposes. In addition, Lightcast forecasts population counts using a cohort model, which estimates census population counts based on birth rates, death rates, immigration patterns, and other factors. Further information on Lightcast’s methodology can be found in their Developer Knowledge base. Depending on the source, charts in this snapshot are updated and released in different time interval, per Lightcast’s release schedule.
