Using State Unemployment Insurance Data to Track Student Postsecondary Outcomes
Neild, Ruth Curran; Boccanfuso, Christopher
NASSP Bulletin, v94 n4 p253-273 Dec 2010
Despite the proliferation of data about student performance, secondary school educators have had difficulty accessing data on their former students' post-high school employment and earnings in the formal economy. This article describes how one community used state unemployment insurance data, merged with student record data, to investigate the early labor market outcomes of dropouts and graduates. The authors explain how they merged the data and present findings from the descriptive research questions that were addressed with these data. (Contains 9 tables, 1 figure, and 1 note.)
