USGS Workforce Demographics, Measures, and Metrics


USGS Workforce Planning Data Guide

The Data Guide provides information on the USGS standard workforce data elements – what they are, and how to use them. See the “Glossary of Terms” and the “Measures and Metrics” sections for specific information on the data, data codes, and formulas used to compute metrics.

The USGS Human Resources Office researched a wide variety of generally accepted human capital metrics, and established standardized definitions and formulas with clear terminology in order to eliminate confusion in understanding, producing, and using USGS Workforce Demographics, Metrics, and Measures. Using these standards allows the USGS to concentrate on the most useful demographics, measures, and metrics, and ensures that the data is pulled and results calculated in the same way. As a result, USGS standard demographics, measures, and metrics are comparable across the USGS and across time, regardless of the organizational level.
