Utah Announces New Workforce Dashboard

The Utah Department of Workforce Services provides some of the most important state services. It is an agency that understands data and its importance in making sound decisions. The Department just announced a new Workforce Statistics Dashboard.

The Dashboard uses Tableau to visualize data such as labor market information, public assistance recipients, poverty and homelessness, and job growth programs. The tool provides the ability to take a more granular look at these issues, either statewide or at the county level.

Here's an example of just one portion of the dashboard which is interactive with the user.

The dashboard also provides download capabilities making it another piece of the state's overall commitment to open data.
