A wealth of workforce data on the Web

FedScope

Need statistics for workforce planning? Want to know how much computer specialists

are getting paid in another agency in another city? A tool to help you find

that information is now available on the Internet.

The Office of Personnel Management officially launched a new query and

analytical tool on Thursday that allows anyone to access the most in-demand

federal workforce data via the World Wide Web.

FedScope provides the who, what and where of the federal workforce along

with tools to help measure any combination of the data. It enables users

to search for such things as employee gender, length of service, salary

level, work schedule and job location as far back as 1994. OPM will soon

be adding data on race and origin to the system.

For instance, an employee can use FedScope to see how many computer

specialists there are governmentwide and then drill down for more detail

such as salaries for computer specialists in different agencies. Data can

be displayed as text or graphics and can be exported to other applications,

such as Microsoft Corp.'s Excel spreadsheet.

FedScope uses extract data from OPM's Central Personnel Data File, which

gathers employment statistics on the 1.8 million civilian executive branch

employees. However, FedScope does not provide specifics on individual employees

or a link to the CPDF database.
