State Partners

The Jacob France Institute works closely with labor market information units and related research organizations in five states (California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland). These state entities support The Jacob France Institute and MEETS by providing LED data, providing valuable technical assistance and participating in the design and development of the new prototype labor market information products. These partners assist the project team in assessing the value-added of newly developed linked administrative record tools.
