By tracking trends in employment and earnings, understanding the changing industry and occupational mix in today’s labor markets, and evaluating workforce development initiatives, Urban Institute research helps local, state, and federal leaders make choices about policies and programs that lower the barriers to employment, build up the skills of the workforce, match workers with jobs, and support workers through their careers and through hard times.
