Employment and Training Administration announces the GUIDE TO STATE AND LOCAL WORKFORCE DATA: FOR ANALYSIS AND INFORMED DECISION MAKING

The Guide to State and Local Workforce Data provides links to a wealth of state and local employment and economic data — virtually all free — from government and private sector sources. It combines several features that make it uniquely valuable.

  • Comprehensive coverage of the most valuable workforce data sources from government and private sector sources
  • Direct links to the data, which connects users immediately to the information they need
  • Organization by topic (e.g., compensation, education and credentials, etc.), which allows users to quickly locate what they need
  • Summary statistics on the number of states and localities for which data are available
  • A general description for each entry, including when the data series began, and how often and how quickly it’s published
  • Essential background information for each entry, including links to frequently asked questions, contact information if the user needs more help, glossaries, and the actual survey questions
  • Key definitions and tips for using workforce statistics

The Guide can be easily customized by the user, and is designed for the broadest possible audience, including

  • State and local Workforce Investment Act and other employment and training program staff;
  • DOL grant applicants and recipients;
  • Educators, trainers and career counselors;
  • Economic development and strategic planners;
  • Community and faith-based organizations;
  • Employers;
  • Labor unions;
  • DOL national and regional office staff; and
  • Researchers, students, and the general public.
