Purpose
This document presents an overview of the major work locations of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government within the United States, providing the public and analysts access to commonly requested information about the different work locations of the Federal Workforce. This document presents data in the form of tables on the major work locations within the United States for the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.
Coverage
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data coverage is often equated to the Federal Executive civilian workforce. The data excludes a few major components of the Executive Branch (most notably the Postal Service and intelligence agencies) and includes some parts or components of the Legislative and Judiciary Branch. OPM data excludes contractors and contract employees. For specific exclusions and inclusions, visit FedData on the OPM’s website: http://www.opm.gov/feddata/html/sdminfo.asp.
Important Information about the Data
The data provided is comprised of Non-Seasonal Full-Time Permanent (NSFTP) Employees only. NSFTP includes all employees working a 40-hour work week year round with no absolute end date. Non-seasonal FullTime Permanent (NSFTP) employees make up the majority of the Federal workforce, over 89%. NSFTP counts are comparably the least susceptible to seasonal variation. The implication is that NSFTP statistics offer the most consistent month-to-month comparisons. The data in the following section are restricted to NSFTP. Furthermore, the data are also restricted to employees in pay status (employees receiving a paycheck). 1 The data in the section below represent Fiscal Year 2017, which, in the Federal Government, ended on the 30th of September 2017. Lastly, it is important to note that the data reflect places of employment, not places of residence.
Data
This section presents basic data, in the form of tables, on the major work locations within the United States for the Executive Branch of the Federal Government.
1 Data are always filtered to employees in pay status, meaning only employees currently receiving a paycheck are included.
