The Chief Evaluation Office (CEO) conducts Summer Data Challenges based on emerging priorities of the Department of Labor. The competition awards emerging and established scholars approximately $30,000 each to use existing data to analyze federal labor policies, protections and programs.

In 2021 and 2022, the Chief Evaluation Office (CEO) competed Summer Data Challenges on Equity and Underserved Communities, where scholars used existing data to analyze how federal labor policies, protections and programs reach traditionally underserved communities due to race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, income, geography, immigrant status, veteran status and disability status, among others. Award winners completed their analyses between June and October.
