Mission & History

The New Jersey Education to Earnings Data System (NJEEDS) is the State of New Jersey’s centralized longitudinal data system and was developed in 2012 through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Its core mission is to create a single place where state education, postsecondary education, employment, and workforce longitudinal data are securely stored and information made available to education and training stakeholders and the public for analysis in order to improve governance efforts, policymaking, and the performance of education and workforce initiatives.

According to Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, by 2018, 63% of all jobs will require some college education.

NJEEDS aims to help the public as well as educators, workforce program operators, and other stakeholders make data-informed decisions to improve student learning and labor market outcomes.

This includes facilitating research, providing statistical data, and publishing reports about student achievements, postsecondary outcomes, and workforce success on the system’s website.
