EMSI has recently made available a new standard report for community and technical college clients. The “Program Justification Report” offers focused supply/demand information to help colleges decide if there is sufficient workforce demand to create a new career-oriented program or expand an existing one. Starting with a client-selected list of up to 15 occupations and any custom region of one or more counties, the report summarizes the regional, state, and national labor market outlooks for those occupations, then totals how many students in the area recently completed a award or degree in related postsecondary programs (at the client college and at all regional colleges). A significant shortage of completions compared to estimated annual job openings is an important indicator that the college should expand its program offerings in those fields.
