Monthly Series
Housing and Economic Development Strategies for Inclusive Communities
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 2:00:00 PM to  3:00:00 PM Eastern

States, counties and cities continue to compete to attract businesses and workers, but incomes for many workers have been stagnant, the cost of housing continues to rise, and many are priced out of the areas with the best access to jobs. Without coordination, economic development and housing policies often miss opportunities to ensure broadly shared prosperity. Ellen Harpel of Smart Incentives and Lisa Sturtevant of LSA will describe work being done at the intersection of housing policy, economic development and affordable housing finance. The goal of the session is to provide attendees with a better understanding of the importance of inclusive communities and to give concrete examples of ways local jurisdictions can develop inclusive and integrated land use, economic development and housing policies.

New National Earnings Data for Graduates by Institution and Major
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 1:00:00 PM to  2:00:00 PM Eastern

The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), welcomes Andrew Foote as he presents, “New National Earnings Data for Graduates by Institution and Major.” The Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) project tabulates earnings by institution, degree level and degree field. PSEO does this by linking university transcript data to the Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Employer Household Dynamics (LEHD) records. Data from PSEO offer an important assessment tool to plan post-secondary education and address a major gap in education statistics by providing a much clearer picture of what happens when a graduate gets a job out of state.
