To avoid false precision, for counties with low numbers of energy jobs, we used <10 to show counties with 1-9 energy jobs.
What is a “N/A” county?
The “N/A” numbers are jobs that we are unable to allocate to a specific county within a given state.
Where can I get data prior to 2022?
Can I isolate data from one technology using the same aggregation scheme as the national report?
Due to methodological constraints, statistical significance, and Federal disclosure and privacy laws, the higher-level granularity available in the state-level data is not available at the county level.
Why aren’t clean energy jobs reported by each county using the same aggregation scheme as the national or state reports?
Due to methodological constraints, statistical significance, and Federal disclosure and privacy laws, the higher-level granularity that allows reporting on clean energy jobs at the national and state-level is not available at the county level.
Is this data available by Congressional District (or under any other aggregation scheme)?
Data is not aggregated by Congressional District. How are county estimates generated?
County estimates take state level data, which was released in June 2023, and use a combination of survey results, publicly available government county-level employment data, and Energy Information Administration data on energy activity to apportion jobs results across counties.
Is there demographic information available at the county level?
The sample and accompanying government data do not allow for county-level demographic information on energy jobs.
What USEER report is each data year associated with?
USEER reports contain data from the previous year. As such, the 2023 report contains data from 2022.
