BLS Accessibility Information

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is committed to providing access to all individuals who are seeking information from our website. To provide this information, the BLS website has been designed to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended and currently adheres to WCAG 2.0 or higher accessibility standards.

Section 508 requires that all individuals with disabilities (whether they are federal government employees or members of the general public) have access to, and use of information and data, comparable to that provided to individuals without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. To achieve this goal, BLS provides additional services to make information more readily accessible for everyone.

Any individual with a disability who has trouble accessing information on any BLS website should contact BLS by using the Request for Accessibility Information form. In the box provided, please include the following:

  • the nature of the accessibility problem encountered (please do not include personal medical information in describing the accessibility issue),
  • the URL (web address) of the page or pages in question,
  • the specific information sought, and
  • the desired format.

We will respond within three business days. If you have not received a response within three working days, please send your request again.

If you are looking to obtain more information related to the complaint process, please contact the Civil Rights Center at (202) 693-6500.

For video interpreting services, you can access Video Relay by dialing (877) 709-5797. If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or have a speech disability, please dial 7-1-1 to access telecommunications relay services.
