    On June 5, 2013, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) hosted the Using Administrative Data: Quantitative and Qualitative Insights for Workforce Development Programs Webinar featuring Dr. Elizabeth Weigensberg.  During the Webinar Dr. Weigensberg discussed how the recent challenges with the economic environment have led to an increased need for employment and training assistance. Policymakers, practitioners, and consumers have demonstrated a growing demand for data to assist with decision-making to assess the performance of workforce development programs and obtain a better understanding of how these programs promote employment. This Webinar described recent research efforts in Chicago, highlighting how cross-system, longitudinal, and matched administrative data provided key information to support data-informed decision-making among local stakeholders. Strengths and limitations of administrative data were also discussed, including valuable qualitative insights into the "black box" of what makes workforce programs successful.
