Every other year, the Aspen Institute and its partners recognize one college that is outstanding in the areas of student learning, certificate and degree completion, transfer rates, access and success for minority and low-income students, and rates of employment and earning for graduates.

In mid-2014, we introduced the EMSI Job Forecast, a prediction of the previous month’s change in employment three days before the BLS releases its initial number. The goal of our forecast, which is based on a number of leading labor market indicators and data releases, is to give an early look at the current state of the labor market.
EMSI has just released a new guidebook, Contextualizing Real-Time and Traditional Labor Market Data. In the report, we discuss how to use traditional labor market information to provide crucial context for job postings—and how to connect both data types with hiring data.
