The Workforce Data Quality Campaign (WDQC) has surveyed all fifty states, and the District of Columbia, to learn whether states are collecting individual-level data about non-degree credentials, incorporating that data into their SLDS, evaluating attainment by subpopulation, and identifying
credentials of value. This scan finds that no state has comprehensive data about all types of non-degree credentials. States are the most likely to have data about public for-credit certificate programs, registered apprenticeship certificates, and licenses. Thirty-six states report having most or all individual-level data on for-credit certificates from public two-year institutions in their state. Twenty-seven states report having most or all data about registered apprenticeship certificates, and twenty-two states report having most or all licensing data.
