The Employment and Training Institute and the Institute for Survey and Policy Research (fomerly Social Science Research Facility) of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee conducted household and worker surveys in central city Milwaukee neighborhoods targeted by the City of Milwaukee Community Development Block Grant program. The surveys aided community organizations and residents of Milwaukee's Enterprise Community as they sought to increase employment and economic development in the central city.
The surveys were initiated as part of the Labor Market Study Project supported by the City of Milwaukee, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Milwaukee Public Schools, Private Industry Council of Milwaukee County, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Helen Bader Foundation to expand employment opportunities for Milwaukee area residents and to improve education and training programs for workers. Employment needs of residents were linked to job availability as identified in the semi-annual job openings surveys of employers.
