In line with new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) legislation and new data collection/submission processes, state performance analysts often encounter unexpected data issues (i.e., missing, incongruent, inconsistent, contradictory data). This discussion will focus on reasons for various data-related issues and the data elements most affected by each issue. 

Description

Participants will leave this discussion with an understanding of each data-related issue and how to overcome those issues in their own state’s reporting.

This Peer Learning Group series will focus on WIOA reporting and data accuracy. The first meeting, taking place at 1:00 PM EST on February 19th, will focus on exit date information from the Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL, ETA-9172). U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) staff and consultants will share their findings from exit date data analysis which impact the results of WIOA primary indicators of performance. This call will be a great opportunity for states to learn how they can improve their data collection and submission processes so that information used to calculate outcomes is as accurate as possible. In addition to receiving technical assistance, participants will have a peer-to-peer learning opportunity as they share insights and promising practices with their peers.
