New Dashboard Opens Ups Report Card Data

Virginia Performs tracks a number of goals and measures that specifically relate to Virginia's Workforce System and summarizes these on a Workforce System Report Card. However, all the detailed data behind the report card wasn't publicly available -- until now. Our new Workforce System Data Dashboard uses interactive graphs to highlight key measures in each main goal area; users can easily see discrete data points, highlight a particular region to view, and move at will between goal tabs.

Explore the data.
