Bureau of Land Management Socioeconomic Profiles

Users can explore local data on economics, demographics, land use, economic sectors, and other topics. Each topic includes a summary of relevant data along with a description of the socioeconomic characteristics described in the section and a discussion of how to use the characteristics to understand an area including the relationship to BLM-managed lands.

The SEP tool is based on reports from two previously-developed tools: the Economic Profile System (EPS) and Populations at Risk (PAR).

EPS and PAR use data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce, and other credible public sources. These tools are used by federal land managers, state and local elected officials, planners, city managers, journalists, and researchers in many fields.
