Jobs Development and Workforce Education Service Regions

Services: Spatial analysis, Analytical studies

Research Area: Economic Development

In 2013, the Data Processing Subcommittee of the Indiana Legislative Council and the Indiana Legislative Services Agency were charged (Legislative Council Resolution 13-01) with studying the alignment of jobs development and workforce education services regions with the distribution of service users.

Through a contracted agreement, PPI conducted parallel analyses to create two sets of regional service areas. The first was based on synergies among the current regional service boundaries of selected agencies/organizations intended to minimize disruption to current service infrastructures within and across agencies/organizations to the extent possible. The second option was based on regional economic interconnectedness without regard to current service boundaries.
