Guide to State and Local Workforce Data


This Guide provides comprehensive coverage of the most valuable workforce data sources from government and private sector sources — virtually all free to the user.  Many of the links connect you immediately to data tables.  It’s organized by topic, to allow you to quickly locate what you need, and we summarize the extent of state and local coverage available from each source. The Guide is available in different electronic formats, and can be readily customized by the user.   The descriptions for each entry tell you how often and how quickly the data are published, and who to contact for further help.
