Welcome to the Workforce Data Quality Initiative Community

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Workforce Data Quality Initiative (WDQI) helps state and local workforce leaders ask better questions and answer them. Specifically, WDQI grants support states in building longitudinal data systems (LDS) that link administrative data from workforce and education programs over time, so that workforce leaders can understand what is working and what is not, build tools to help students and workers learn new skills and forge better careers, and conduct research that advances the field. The community has grown to some 37 states and uses #MakingBetterWork as its hashtag.
