Webinar: Strengthening LMI with Enhanced Wage Records

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

Career program planners, workforce program administrators, economists and others are interested in the improved collection and analysis of labor market information (LMI). To this end, the Workforce Information Council (WIC) has been examining the possibility of expanding the information that states are required to submit as part of the Unemployment Insurance Program.

The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), a WDQC partner, held a webinar in collaboration with the LMI Institute to review the benefits and challenges of enhancing UI wage records, with experts who have been involved in WIC's effort.

Date: February 10, 2015
  • Raj Jindal, Director, Information Technology, Organization: Louisiana Workforce Commission
  • Steve Saxton, Consultant, Saxton Consulting

The webinar recording and documents are accessible for C2ER members. For more information, please visit C2ER's webinar event page.
