Get an in-depth look at an innovative new tool from the State of Minnesota's Workforce Data Quality Initiative (WDQI) project which provides information about graduates' hourly and annual wages, industry of employment, and region of employment, as well as the share of graduates employed full time or re-enrolled in post-secondary school after graduation.


Representatives of the State of Minnesota will provide an overview of the tool's functionalities with a special focus on analyzing labor demand and supply conditions based on wages by industry and region, and attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the challenges and benefits of building and using this type of tool.
