The Association of Public Data Users (APDU) and the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), which are membership organizations with expertise in statistics and labor market information, have joined WDQC as national partners.

WDQC now has 11 national partner organizations that collaboratively develop and promote WDQC policy positions.

Both APDU and C2ER are managed by the non-profit Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness. APDU is a national network that links users, producers and disseminators of government statistical data. Part of its mission is communicating the perspectives and concerns of public data users to policymakers. C2ER works to improve data availability, enhance data quality and foster learning about regional economic analysis.

Expanding the use of labor market information is a key part of WDQC’s agenda, so we are delighted to have new partners that will increase our knowledge and networks in this area.
