Data-driven decision making

A robust understanding of our local economy enables the Board to help align workforce and economic development initiatives while generating policy based on the needs of our local employers as well as the intel gathered from our education and workforce development partners.

To help inform and provide data for decision making, The GRWDB staff compiles custom data reports, commissions research reports, and reviews analysis of trends in employment, human resources management, and workforce delivery efforts in general.

The Hunterdon County, NJ Economic Profile and the Somerset County, NJ Economic Profile details employment, population, income, education, and other demographic and socio-economic data for each county.

To better understand the needs of employers, the GRWDB has published In-demand Occupations Reports for each county. The Hunterdon County, NJ In-demand Occupations report and the Somerset County, NJ In-demand Occupations report inventories occupations by openings and reviews the skills, certifications, and credentials necessary for employment.
