Students, workers, employers, program managers, educators, and policymakers all want to understand the employment outcomes of those completing postsecondary education or workforce training programs. This information can help stakeholders formulate good state policies, improve programs, decide which program to attend, or find qualified employees.
In order to understand employment outcomes, states and eligible outlying areas should participate in the State Wage Interchange System (SWIS). State Wage Interchange System: Better data for stronger workforce programs explains what SWIS is and how the process of data sharing is important to research and evaluation.
