Catalogue of Workforce Information Sources: Decision Making Assistance for Regional Economic Development. U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration
US Department of Labor
In early 2006, The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) began an initiative called Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development (WIRED) to help regions create competitive conditions, integrate economic and workforce development activities, and demonstrate that talent development can successfully drive and transform regional economies across the United States. The use of a wide variety of public and private sector data and information sources described in this Catalogue of Workforce Information Sources can help in each step of the WIRED framework and assist WIRED regions to achieve their economic development vision and goals. The Catalogue of Workforce Information Sources, developed by the Employment and Training Administration in 2003 as an environmental scan, has been updated annually. It represents ETA's first effort to identify, capture, and organize the dynamic and expanding body of workforce and labor market information continuously generated by public and private sources. The intent of this catalogue is to better inform various information consumer groups including workforce, talent, and regional economic development specialists, education and training planners, and public policy makers about the large quantity of quality workforce and labor market information available to them. The catalogue is not intended to be a comprehensive encyclopedia or exhaustive inventory of all that is being produced at the federal, state, and local levels. The catalogue is organized into three sections. The first section examines a mix of labor market and workforce information sources including those most widely and commonly consulted. The second part of the catalogue examines several web-based workforce and labor market information delivery systems. The third section of the catalogue highlights new and emerging data integration and analysis tools developed by the private-sector and federal government.
