Core Tables. The WID Structure document above contains table structure for a number of data sources so that states who are collecting or using related data can store it in a way that has been vetted by other states and is comparable to the rest of the database. However, the only tables that are required to be maintained by the TEGL are the core tables.
Download Data. The ARC puts out data in WID format from a number of public data sources. All data contained in these files can be obtained from federal agencies, but it may be more convenient to get it here.
