Data & Tools

The Upjohn Institute maintains three interactive databases:

  • The Panel Database on Incentives and Taxation, which provides comprehensive information on business incentives for economic development provided by state and local governments;
  • The New Hires Quality Index, a consistent way of measuring the earnings power of people taking new jobs each month, allowing comparisons over time; and
  • The place-based college-scholarship Promise Programs Database, which details promise scholarship programs across the country.

Over the years, the Upjohn Institute has served as the data repository for many research and evaluation projects sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, and we make those archived data sets available here.

The Upjohn Institute tracks several usage and success measures of The Kalamazoo Promise.
