Workforce Data

NSC is working toward a future where all states and the federal government will have data systems in place to measure how well education and training programs are preparing skilled workers for the 21st century economy. We’re working with advocates, practitioners, and state and federal officials to develop smart data policies, systems, and tools that tell us if we’re skilling our workforce and if we’re doing it in a racially equitable, inclusive way.

Who needs workforce data? Everyone.

Students & workers trying to figure out which colleges and training programs are best at helping people land a job.

Policymakers who need to know whether education and workforce programs are preparing people for good jobs and if outcomes are equitable across racial groups.

Business leaders seeking skilled workers and wondering whether education and training programs are preparing prospective employees to meet their companies’ needs.

Educators wanting to know the long-term education and employment outcomes of their graduates so they can continually improve their courses and curricula.
