OVERVIEW

With the rapid growth and adoption of technologies like artificial intelligence having uncertain and disparate effects on labor markets, the need for high-quality interdisciplinary research into labor market dynamics and workforce development has never been so urgent.

The University of Chicago’s Center for Data Science and Public Policy (DSaPP) is leading an effort to improve the accessibility and usability of rich, unstructured, non-public labor market data resources. The Data@Work Research Hub provides free access for academic researchers to newly generated public data sets on labor market dynamics, as well as a secure research environment for working with large databases of non-public resumes, job postings, and employment outcome data.

In addition, research funding will be provided for a selected group of proposals for using the new data. At the end of June, we will begin accepting research proposal applications that demonstrate potential uses for these newly available data sets. Three proposals will be selected to receive a $5,000 research grant to support their work.
