EconSys assisted the Women's Bureau of the Department of Labor (DOL) in developing new technology to more efficiently create, update, and share key monthly data updates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The widget replaces old methodologies of manually creating chart individually, proving to be a much more effective way to visualize and share labor statistics.

Survey burnout within individual agencies, inability to reach and engage with targeted respondents, and budget considerations can make it difficult to ensure the response rates needed for a successful survey.
To address these issues, it is important to not only understand why they exist, but how to construct and communicate the role of a survey within the agency.
