Data Dashboards

Women in Construction

Women represent a growing portion of the construction workforce, requiring timely and accurate data to guide safety and health interventions.

This story-dashboard contains two sets of charts, navigated by clicking either the blue caption boxes or the arrows at the top of the dashboard. They examine: 1) Women in Construction and All Industries and 2) Characteristics of Women in Construction. Data are from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Population Survey (CPS), downloaded from IPUMS for 2011-2021.

Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the information icon  located to the right of each dashboard title. To get a full view of the dashboard on a mobile device, zoom out slightly and use landscape mode, which will provide a better navigation experience.

You can download the data as a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is color-coded for each set of charts, and each worksheet name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.

The dashboard will be updated in Spring 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email
