Workforce Data Quality Campaign
Workforce Data Quality Campaign (WDQC) advocates for inclusive, aligned and market-relevant data systems used for advancing the nation's skilled workforce and helping U.S. industries compete in a changing economy. WDQC was developed in 2012 by convening stakeholders from across the education and workforce development spectrum, along with researchers and technical data experts from the state and federal levels.
To achieve its vision, WDQC encourages Congress and federal agencies to strengthen support for strategic data collection, management and usage that protects individual privacy while enabling analysis and research. At the state level, the WDQC promotes key features of high-quality state longitudinal data systems and shares best practices through publications, webinars and convenings.
WDQC is a project of National Skills Coalition led by a broad coalition of national partners representing the education and workforce development spectrum.
