Description:

Based at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the Center for Human Capital Studies "intends to enhance the understanding of human capital development and labor market issues." On its page, visitors can learn about the center’s annual reports, its Jobs Calculator, and various events and symposia. The Jobs Calculator calculates the net employment change needed to achieve a target unemployment rate after a specified number of months. Visitors can start by entering their own metrics to view statewide numbers or consult a list of FAQs for using the calculator. The center’s newsletter and working papers can be found in the Publications area and the podcasts offer another great feature to the site. Podcast topics include "Economic Gardening: A Homegrown Approach to Growth" and "Help for Difficult to Employ Populations: Colocating Jobs and Training Opportunities.”
