June 5, 2023

At a Glance

Data is essential to proving the efficacy of an intervention, demonstrating the need for a new approach, or simply understanding how our individual efforts add up to systems-level trends.

In their work designing and advocating for more equitable pathways systems that span education to careers, intermediary organizations use data from multiple sources. Internally, they monitor and evaluate program performance. They also rely on data from across education and workforce systems to reveal trends and identify areas for greatest impact.

Identifying cross-systems trends requires responsibly painting a picture by looking across K-12, postsecondary, and labor market data.
