2011 Economic Impact of Walla Walla Community College (EMSI)

The reports below show estimated rates of employment after nine months for workforce degree & certificate completers by program CIP. Only program completers with no further enrollment in the Washington CTC system for a year are included. Rates are based on unemployment insurance (UI) records in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. Since many employed graduates may not pay UI (self employed, e.g.) or may work outside of those states mentioned, a process was developed by the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) to estimate the total number employed. Please note that data for groups of less than 10 have been suppressed. Data come from the Data Linking for Outcomes Assessment (DLOA) database maintained by SBCTC.

For information on earnings of students completing certificates and degrees from Washington public schools and universities and for those completing apprenticeship programs in Washington, please see the earnings reports available from the Education Research & Data Center (ERDC).

For information on the top 25 occupations and employers in Washington as well as the skill sets and certifications that Washington employers say they’re looking for, please see the employer demand reports available from the Washington State Employment Security Department. Other labor market reports and analyses can be found there as well.
