Integrating Data Over Time

The Nebraska Statewide Workforce & Educational Reporting System, or NSWERS, is a state-of-the-art data system that promotes a strong economy, good jobs, growing business, and thriving communities. NSWERS is unique, the only resource in the state that integrates education data over time, from preschool to grade 12, through college, and into work, creating a wholistic view of the learning and earning journey.

Supporting Decision Making

NSWERS is focused on the development of products and services that best support decision making and decision makers. For the first time in our state’s history, we have integrated education and workforce data to answer the big and bold questions facing Nebraska today.

Questions like:

  • How many high school graduates go on to college?
  • Are students ready to work when they graduate?
  • How long does it take graduates to find a good job?
  • Do they stay and work in Nebraska?

Partnering with Education & Workforce

NSWERS is a one-of-a-kind partnership between Nebraska’s learning and earning systems. Partners include the Nebraska Department of Education, all six Nebraska Community Colleges, the Nebraska State College System, and the University of Nebraska System. The Nebraska Department of Labor provides the connection from education into employment.

Improving Programs in Nebraska

NSWERS collects and analyzes data that drives real change. Partners, policymakers, and researchers access this information to help make informed decisions that will improve education and workforce programs in the state.

With NSWERS, there are answers for every Nebraskan.
