Economic Data 101 for Employment and Training Programs (podcast)

This presentation will provide you with the basic knowledge to find and interpret economic data, emphasizing the kind of information that the U.S. Department of Labor requires or recommends for state Workforce Investment Act plans. It’s part of a series of podcasts we offer to help individuals understand and use labor market data.

It’s written simply, and presumes no previous subject matter or statistical knowledge. We provide a podcast roughly 13 minutes long plus a 3 page transcript. The podcast and transcript can be used either separately or together: the links can't be accessed from the podcasts, but the podcasts include visuals not available in the transcripts.

The presentation covers GDP, productivity, capital equipment, and integrated economic/employment data.
