WIA Planning Information

Updated on:  September 5, 2014

In the past, the data for the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Planning Information Packets were gathered from a variety of sources and packaged by county to aid local organizations in identifying target group needs and in making appropriate resource allocations for employment and training activities. The EDD no longer packages this data, but rather, it provides links to the data sources.

The U.S. Department of Labor: Employment and Training Administration (ETA) defines the economically disadvantaged population as persons below the federal poverty level or below 70% of the Lower Living Standard Income Levels (LLSIL). ETA contracted with a private research firm to tabulate these data from individual responses to the decennial census. These tabulations are provided by county and sub-county areas and their aggregate total may not match published data from the United States Census Bureau. The data tabulations from the 2000 Census may be found in the WIA Planning and Information Packets for 2011 Archive.
