Since 1913, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has administered a program of historical markers to capture the memory of people, places, and events that have affected the lives of Pennsylvanians over the centuries since William Penn founded his Commonwealth. More than 2,000 bronze plaques and cast aluminum markers tell the stories of Native Americans and settlers, government and politics, athletes, entertainers, artists, struggles for freedom and equality, factories and businesses, and a multitude of other topics. This dataset includes Pennsylvania historical markers by title, dedication date, location, county, category and marker text.

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections (DOC) and the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole (PBPP) are jointly responsible for managing various administrative processes that are key drivers of the state prison population. These key areas of joint DOC/PBPP operations which affect the prison population include:
Interviews - Parole Board capacity for scheduling and conducting parole interviews
Pending Release - Inmates approved for parole but still pending release from prison for various reasons
Release - The number of inmates released onto parole supervision, either in a community corrections center (halfway house) or at home
Parole Violator – Re-admission to PA DOC custody for a parole violation
The primary objective of this dashboard is to provide a tool for monitoring/managing progress towards improvements in these areas which will enable more efficient management of the prison population. By achieving improvements in these areas, the ultimate outcomes will be cost reduction, public safety enhancement, and prison population reduction.
The data represents the percent change in wages for an individual who has wages recorded in the Unemployment Compensation (UC) wage record file in the quarter in which they completed Industry Partnership training and wages found in the UC wage record file for that individual four quarters later. The change could be an increase or a decrease in wages. For example, if an individual completed training in the third quarter of 2013 and earned $5,000 in that quarter and earned $7,500 in the third quarter of 2014 the percent change for that individual would be 50%. The file incudes a count of all individuals who benefited from industry partnership training, the workforce development area of the industry partnership, the training program completed and the percentage change in wages per individual training. The top line of the file includes the overall percentage change for all trainings.
*The goal for Labor & Industry is based on receiving $10 million to fund Industry Partnerships.
This dataset is for Program Year 2013-2016 and will be updated annually due to federal release schedule.
