All Core Tables

As stated in the Employment and Training Administration (ETA), Workforce Information Core Products and Services Grant, “States are required to implement and maintain the most current version of the Workforce Information Database and populate all tables designated as core tables in accordance with guidelines issued by the Analyst Resource Center (ARC). Database content must be updated timely in order to be as current as the state’s most recent publications and data releases.”

See the ETA Guidelines page for more information regarding ETA requirements.
