Inclusive cross-agency council
Connecticut recently enacted HB 5590, which, in relevant part, codifies the state’s existing longitudinal data system and creates a universal intake form for persons seeking assistance at American Job Centers or Workforce Development Board facilities.
New legislation, UT SB 194, replaces Utah’s longitudinal data system, the Utah Data Alliance (UDA) with the Utah Data Research Center (UDRC). In doing so, this bill changes the system’s governance model, builds the state’s research capacity, institutionalizes inter-agency data sharing, and promotes data use.
WDQC and the Data Quality Campaign, a national partner that promotes effective use of data by education stakeholders, recently released a fact sheet that looks at how states are utilizing workforce data to help prepare students for successful careers. The fact sheet is based on information from the 2013 Data for Action survey of states conducted by the Data Quality Campaign.
