C2ER Conference Proceedings: Skills Shortages, Cheap Data, and More.

While I was unable to join them this year, my colleagues at the Council for Community and Economic Research just concluded a very successful annual conference in Oklahoma City last week.    In addition to cheeering on the Thunder, the conferees also got a chance to learn about the latest innovations in economic and workforce development-related research and applications.   Even better, the conference proceedings are now available on-line.   Some of the sessions may be of primary interest to us data geeks, but there are lots of useful tools, guides, and resources highlighted in the various presentations.  Examples include sessions on “Addressing The Skills Gap?  Is the Worker Shortage for Real,” how to use real time labor information, what kind of data do relocating businesses need, and what are the best research tools and data to purchase if you only have $1000.
