Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP)
Determining Availability: 2006–2010 Census EEO Tabulation
According to 41 CFR 60–2.14(d) contractors “must use the most current and discrete statistical information available to derive availability figures.” In 2012, the United States Census Bureau released the 2006–2010 EEO Tabulation (2010 EEO Tab). The 2010 EEO Tab provides statistical data that allows for an examination of the labor force in the local area by supplying information on race, ethnicity, sex and other demographic data. The first link below provides a formal notice to Federal contractors that they must begin using the 2010 EEO Tab to develop all Affirmative Action Programs (AAPs) that commence on or after January 1, 2014. OFCCP will, likewise, begin using the 2010 EEO Tab to evaluate the reasonableness of all AAPs commencing on or after January 1, 2014. The second link goes directly to the 2010 EEO Tab that Federal contractors must use. The third link is to the Sample AAP that provides an example of how the availability statistical data is used in conducting a utilization analysis (see 41 CFR 60–2.13 to 2.15).
