An Overview of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 as it Pertains to the Wyoming Department of Employment Research & Planning Section and the Rocky Mountain and Northern Plains Consortium
The methodology used in the New Hires Survey is explained in the article "Survey Captures Data on Wyoming New Hires" in the February 2011 issue of Wyoming Labor Force Trends.
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.
Several changes were made to the new hires survey instrument before it was
mailed out for the first quarter 2012 (2012Q1) panel. The revised questionnaire
was mailed to a small percentage of the 2012Q1 sample in order to ensure that
the changes did not create respondent confusion. These changes do not change
the overall integrity of the questionnaire, but should help clarify the intent of
the question to the employer filling it out. To find out more about the changes
that were made, click here.
