OFCCP Announces New Census Data Deadline


On May 14, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced that federal contractors covered by affirmative action laws must use the 2006-2010 EEO Tabulation (2010 EEO Tab) in place of the 2000 Census data. 

The 2010 EEO Tab was released by the U.S. Census Bureau on November 29, 2012. Use of the 2006-2010 EEO Tab will not significantly impact availability calculations, but companies should review their occupational census codes to make sure the codes from the 2006-2010 EEO Tab match their positions. The 2010 EEO Tab must be used in all affirmative action plans commencing on or after January 1, 2014.
