WIOA Title I and III Annual Report Data: Program Year 2020

Programmatic performance data is important for all workforce system partners, stakeholders such as State and Local Workforce Development Boards (WDBs), and the public to better understand workforce system operations, enhance services, and pursue continuous improvement for services to job seekers and employers.  ETA invites you to learn more about our programs, services, and outcomes. Access these maps for ETA-9169 State level data including WIOA title I Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs as well as title III Wagner-Peyser data. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires titles I and III programs to submit programmatic performance data to the Department of Labor (WIOA sec. 116 (d)); states report data annually through the ETA-9169 (OMB Control Number 1205-0526) reporting template. 

Instructions:   Select a state on the map or the table to view a quick snapshot of key data points for each state. For more detailed information use the table tab to drill down to individual performance indicators by state, see national information, compare programs, and view multiple states’ data, and download information.

WIOA Individual Performance Records (Public Use Data)

The WIOA Individual Performance Records are submitted by states to ETA on both a quarterly and annual basis. The WIOA Individual Performance Record files contain detailed information on program completers (i.e., exiters), including demographics, types of services received, and outcomes attained as a result of participating in the program. You can view the quarterly public file, explore the national Data Books, which contain "slices and dices" of performance information available in the WIOA Individual Performance Records, and view broad summaries of the performance information through the WIOA National Performance Summaries. Please review the appropriate "WIOA Performance Records Public Use File Disclaimer" before accessing the files. Each quarterly file contains a rolling ten (10) quarters of data. Q4 files contain data from Q1, Q2, and Q3 and are considered the annual dataset. 

NOTE: Each public use data file below contains over 20 million records and should be opened using a statistical software package capable of reading large files.

WIOA Annual Data Book

The Data Book provides information on the characteristics, services, and outcomes of persons served by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, and the Wagner-Peyser Act program. The Data Book draws primarily from the Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL) data that states submitted to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) to meet their annual and quarterly reporting requirements.

WIOA State Plans and Plan Modifications

States submit a four-year State Plan with an interim two-year modification to ETA under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  To access, read, and/or download the current approved State Plan for a State, please visit the WIOA State Plan Portal.  

In addition to identifying a single State or multiple State Plans for review and/or download, users may also search across all Plans in the portal with key words or phrases of interest (e.g. equity, inclusion, apprenticeship, career pathways, eligible training providers, sector strategies, etc.).  As plans and modifications are approved, access to them will also be available through the portal. 

State Plans and their modifications are expected to address changes in the provision of workforce services during the current planning period, and the expectations for continuation of these and other service integration and delivery improvements in the near future.  The diagnosis of the State’s situation and trends in the Plan examines both the short-term and long-term consequences of labor market changes in the State, and the potential impact (including challenges and opportunities) for the public workforce system.

Economic Analysis and Annual Economic Reports

All workforce programs operate within the context of a regional economy.  Therefore, each State Plan and its modification opens with a cogent and thoughtful analysis of economic, labor market, and workforce development activities currently occurring within the State and its regional labor markets.   The incorporation of timely, comprehensive and accurate labor market information (LMI) establishes key scaffolding for the State’s strategic and operational planning.

In addition, an important companion to the State Plan is the annual Economic Analysis Report submitted by the State as a deliverable for their Workforce Information Grant (WIG).  The Economic Analysis Report is an environmental scan of the state that sets the stage for informed, data-driven decision-making in workforce programs. 

The annual statewide Economic Analysis Reports for individual States can be found in the drop-down menu below.

Users may also wish to visit LMI Central, a repository for data sources, data tools and other LMI resources supporting data-driven planning and decision-making.
