Supporting Detail File Format

The file format for the supporting detail file for USPS agencies is shown below. This is a raw data file that allows agencies to write their own reporting programs and create custom reports.

Note: Records are first sorted into workforce and new hire records. Within these two groups the records are sorted by EEO job category code on report, race and sex.
