What happens to federal employees when a new president shakes things up? Do they stay or do they go?

A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research looks at this trend and sorts government workers into one of three categories.

The study, “Elections, Ideology and Turnover in the U.S. Federal Government,” comes from three political science professors: Alexander Bolton of Emory University, John M. de Figueiredo of Duke University and David Lewis of Vanderbilt University.

They looked at Office of Personnel Management data spanning 1988 and 2011 and developed departure models to run against it.

Federal Drive host Tom Temin asked the study’s authors where these effects will be felt the most in government.

So what kind of federal employee will you be under President Donald Trump’s administration? Take our survey and see where you stand among other government employees.
