Building a Workforce Data Portal: From Data Silos to an Integrated Data Platform
Mar 11 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
New York City’s Workforce Data Portal (Portal) represents a wide-scale effort by the Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity (NYC Opportunity) to integrate and standardize data reporting across New York City’s workforce development system. Currently, the Portal incorporates data from 18 workforce development programs managed by five (5) distinct City agencies, as well as data from the New York State Department of Labor’s wage reporting system.
The Portal is a key component of an integrated data system that collects, integrates, and visualizes data to provide policymakers, practitioners, and advocates a more complete picture of workforce development activities funded by the City of New York. NYC Opportunity developed and maintains this Portal as part of its work to help the City use evidence and innovation to reduce poverty and advance equity.
The goals of the event
- Share approaches to building an integrated data platform to turn raw data into meaningful insights.
- Advocate the importance of data standards and definitions for conducting analyses across multiple City agencies.
- Discuss how this portal can be leveraged by researchers, policy makers and data scientists.
