Learn about current trends in Indiana's education-to-workforce pipeline
The Education and Workforce Development (EWD) database is a large-scale data matching initiative within MPH. This longitudinal data set is combined to answer key questions about the education and workforce pipeline. It allows stakeholders such as education professionals, employers, policymakers, students, community leaders, and the public to use data and information previously not available. Today, partner agencies include the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, the Indiana Department of Education, the Department of Workforce Development, and the Family and Social Services Administration. EWD does not replace agency data collection and administration responsibilities; rather, it serves as a clearinghouse where specific data elements are linked across the four agencies.
