High school students need good information to form good decisions toward their postsecondary and career options. A new program called the Workforce Data Quality Initiative (WDQI) will help high school students with those decisions. Minnesota is among 29 states participating in this U.S. Department of Labor initiative, which combines education and workforce statistics into a comprehensive system for research and analysis. Among the goals of the initiative is to follow students through school into the workforce and to provide statistics on how long it took them to find a job, how much they are paid and other employment measures.
