NCSES Skilled Technical Workforce - Workshop #2

About this event

The National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics is hosting a webinar series focused on the skilled technical workforce in the U.S.

This webinar is titled “Administrative and Other Supplemental Data Sources for the Skilled Technical Workforce (STW)”. Attendance is open to all, but you must pre-register through NCSES web page, which also includes a preliminary agenda and additional workshop details. 

Attendees will learn about the NCSES STW Initiative efforts on developing a strategy to use administrative and other supplemental data sources to measure and understand the STW—workers that use significant levels of science and engineering expertise and technical knowledge in their occupations and whose educational attainment is less than a bachelor's degree. As there is a strong interest for federal statistical agencies to explore the use of administrative data and other supplemental data as an alternative or supplement to survey data, this workshop will discuss some of the best practices, challenges, and opportunities associated with using alternative data sources to better measure the STW.
