A major objective of CPDF was to relieve participating agencies from periodic survey reports requirements. The CPDF provided the capability for utilizing the various data elements to produce status and dynamic outputs in a multitude of combinations. Major outputs from CPDF included the following: a) Semiannual Report on Minority Group Employment; b) Annual Report on White-Collar Occupations; c) Annual Report on Geographic Distribution of Employment; d) Annual Report on Salary Distribution of Employment; and e) Annual Report on Blue-Collar Workers.
