Welcome to the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center Data Dashboard. The Command Center, created by executive order of Governor Tom Wolf in February 2019, brings an innovative approach to addressing the critical issue of training qualified workers for the jobs Pennsylvania companies need to fill.
Here you will find data related to four themes:
Economic Drivers of Pennsylvania's workforce outcomes, such as local employment growth and business activity;
Information on Pennsylvania's Labor Force, including the state's unemployment and labor force participation rates;
The performance of Pennsylvania's Education and Training programs; and
Barriers to employment for Pennsylvania job-seekers.
Content for the Data Dashboard is updating continually, so please check back often. For more information on the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center, visit the Command Center website at https://www.pasmart.gov/command-center/
