CEW is a research and policy institute within Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy.
CEW is funded by generous grants from its partner foundations: the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Lumina Foundation, JPMorgan Chase, Ascendium Education Group, The Joyce Foundation, and The Annie E. Casey Foundation.
CEW uses data from federal and state statistical agencies, as well as from private data organizations that provide employment projections, population estimates and other economic indicators. Our projections of jobs and educational requirements include data from the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, IHS Markit, (formerly Macroeconomic Advisers), and EMSI, (formerly Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. CEW also utilizes data available from the National Center for Education Statistics, the Employment and Training Administration’s O*NET (Occupational Network), Current Population Statistics, and the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey and Current Population Survey.
CEW works with IHS Markit and EMSI, Inc. to adjust projections data generated by the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Bureau of Labor Statistics; it does this by incorporating updated macro and GDP trend data to account for changing expectations about the recession.
We tentatively plan to release 2030 job projections and education requirements using real-time data in 2022.
