NJ Unemployment Insurance Claims Dashboard Released

April 25, 2024

The New Jersey Statewide Data System has released the New Jersey Unemployment Insurance Claims Dashboard. This dashboard uses linked, longitudinal administrative data from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education to show the characteristics of individuals with initial unemployment claims between 2014 and 2022. Claimant outcomes, including post-claim employment and postsecondary enrollment, are presented by claimant experience — whether they exhausted benefits or not — and claimant characteristics.

The New Jersey Statewide Data System (NJSDS), formerly the New Jersey Education to Earnings Data System (NJEEDS), is the State of New Jersey’s centralized longitudinal data system for public administrative data. NJSDS is administered by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers’ Bloustein School.

Through coordination with partnering state agencies, NJSDS is a large statewide interagency and intergovernmental platform where data from participating agencies are securely stored to expand access and analysis to improve governance efforts, policymaking, and performance of public initiatives. NJSDS aims to help the public and stakeholders make data-informed decisions to improve public policies and practices for New Jersey residents. This includes facilitating longitudinal and linked-data research, providing statistical data, and publishing reports on the NJSDS website.
