National Workforce Investment Areas

Workforce Investment Boards are the backbone of the nation’s workforce development system. Established by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and continued under the recently enacted Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, nearly 600 WIBs across the country administer the nation’s reemployment services and job training programs and coordinate a host of other services through their service centers to assist people in finding jobs. The Upjohn Institute has compiled an interactive map containing all of the nation's Workforce Investment Areas.

The data are obtained from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Workforce Investment Area Standardized Record Data (WIASRD) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics and are updated whenever new data are released.
