III. b. 6. C. Use of Unemployment Insurance (UI) Wage Record Data
Explain how the State will meet the requirements to utilize quarterly UI wage records for performance accountability, evaluations, and as a source for workforce and labor market information, consistent with Federal and State law. (This Operational Planning element applies to core programs.)
Indiana’s workforce warehouse and longitudinal data systems currently integrate and match UI wage records for employment outcomes and performance accountability reporting. This same system (IWIS) has been used for additional labor market information analysis and to inform the labor market information website, tools, and ad hoc research questions. DWD Performance & Business Intelligence also uses UI Wage Record Data for both the Federal and State Performance Metrics (https://www.in.gov/dwd/RPM.htm), the Workforce Programs Report (https://www.in.gov/dwd/WPR.htm), and other programmatic evaluations and analyses upon request.
