Center for Labor Market Studies records
The collection consists of research papers on employment and poverty in the Boston area and a Boston area community training guide. The collection is unprocessed. The Center for Labor Market Studies is an applied research, evaluation, and policy-oriented technical assistance unit located within the Department of Economics of Northeastern University. It was initially established in 1979 to provide regional leadership for a three year grant that the Economics Department had received from the U.S. Department of Labor under the Institutional Grant Program. The Institutional Grant Program was designed by the national office of the U.S. Department of Labor to involve the nation’s universities and colleges more fully in the education, training, and professional development of staff in the human resources system at the regional, state, and local levels. In addition to these activities, Center for Labor Market Studies began to conduct applied labor market research in Massachusetts, the New England region, and the entire country to train labor market analysts and human resource program planners on research, planning and evaluation techniques, and to assist in the development of improved labor market and occupational information systems and program evaluation systems at the regional, state, and local levels.
