The Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) program released a paper on how to use labor market data to understand and respond to employer demands.  It contents support multiple elements of the Job-Driven Training Checklist, unveiled by Vice President Biden, including Engaging Employers, Smart Choices, Measurement Matters and Stepping Stones. The paper offers an 8-step approach to utilizing and understanding labor market information.

This paper offers real data to provide HPOG grantees and other workforce development projects with insight into career pathway strategies that may be overlooked. In particular, it explores a phenomenon referred to as "the benefits cliffs effect." It examines families that encounter benefits cliffs in eight states and describes strategies for working with HPOG participants and other low-income individuals to confront it.
