Economic & Workforce Data

Economic, workforce, demographic, and training data and analysis

sample award gap chartThe Resouce Center for CareerTech Advancement can provide reports using economic, workforce, demographic, and training data from JobsEQ, which compiles information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the National Center for Education Statistics, O*Net™, the Social Security Administration, and other sources.

Reports can be run for the entire state or by region. A region can be a county, a technology center district, a group of counties, zip code, or group of zip codes.  We can also create regions by radius or by driving time from a central point.

Pre-existing occupations and occupation groups are available (using SOC codes). Custom occupation groups can also be created.

Most reports are available as Excel files and as graphics (charts and tables) that can be used in your own document or presentation.

We have provided samples of the most commonly used reports below. Other reports are also available. To request a report, or for more information, contact:
