This paper assesses the current landscape of employment data, proposing technical enhancements to help agencies and institutions more effectively collect and share information. Recommendations on federal and state policies to better inform students and other key stakeholders about labor market outcomes are also provided. This paper is part of the Postsecondary Data Collaborative series, “Envisioning the National Postsecondary Data Infrastructure in the 21st Century.”
