Mapping Postsecondary and Workforce Information Gaps in State Data Systems
Workforce Data Quality Campaign
State Longitudinal Data Systems (SLDS) match data from different sources about individuals over time, and serve as an important resource for state policymakers, researchers, and the public. These systems contain privacy-protected data that follow an individual�s progress through K-12, postsecondary education, training, social service programs, and the workforce, showing how combinations of courses and programs help people access credentials, employment, and higher earnings. While states have developed robust data systems, there are significant gaps in data.
