Helping Communities Make Sound Decisions


We are pleased to introduce a new report,Advancing State Data Sharing for Better Economic and Workforce Development,by CREC CEO, Ken Poole, and Smart Incentives founder, EllenHarpel.

Sharing administrative data increases evidence available to state leaders as they determine which economic and workforce development programs are likely to produce the greatest benefits for the state’s economy, workers, and communities.This report explains the value of data sharing for program evaluation and details lessons learned for enhancing access to state administrative datasets.
