The regulatory environment is ubiquitous in energy efficiency.

Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center
Technical Report No. SRC-1014

The Wyoming Department of Employment (WDOE), Research & Planning Section, enlisted the Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center (WYSAC) to conduct 10 cognitive interviews at various locations throughout the state of Wyoming. The goal of these interviews was to test how well the questions included in the Job Skills survey perform in achieving the intended purpose of this instrument, which is to be used by the WDOE in the future; namely, to effectively yield the information necessary to help educators and employment training organizations identify necessary skills and develop curriculum to forge these skills in the labor pool.
