5/31/2010 –Two Center Projects Highlighted by Labor Department

On May 17, the U.S. Department of Labor highlighted two of the Center's projects - Administrative Data Research and Evaluation (ADARE) and the Student Futures Project, in an announcement of a grant program aimed at creating and expanding state longitudinal workforce data systems. ADARE, an alliance of nine state partners including the Ray Marshall Center, pioneered the use of linking longitudinal welfare, workforce and other records. The announcement uses the Student Futures Project to exemplify how linked education and workforce data can inform policies and practices, noting that the project "has used their longitudinal administrative database to create a feedback system that has led to improvements in the direct-to-college enrollment rates from 54 percent to 62 percent between 2004 and 2009.
