Webinar: Using Administrative Data
On June 5, 2013 at 2 PM Eastern Time, Dr. Elizabeth Weigensberg, the current Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) Emerging Scholar, will host a Webinar titled Using Administrative Data: Quantitative and Qualitative Insights for Workforce Development Programs. This Webinar will describe recent research efforts in Chicago, highlighting how cross-system, longitudinal, and matched administrative data provided key information to support data-informed decision-making among local stakeholders. Strengths and limitations of administrative data will also be discussed, including valuable qualitative insights into the "black box" of what makes workforce programs successful.
During the Webinar, Dr. Weigensberg will also answer questions submitted by SSRC users and Webinar participants. Questions can be submitted any time before the Webinar through the SSRC's Ask a Question feature.
