Data- Driven Solutions

The Nevada P-20 to Workforce Research Data System (NPWR) is a state-of-the-art research tool that provides Nevadans with unparalleled access to the knowledge needed to understand the trends shaping our state’s education and workforce outcomes. Using state of the art technology and best-in-class security, NPWR is designed to inform education and workforce policies and initiatives across Nevada.

NPWR is truly a statewide collaboration, with the NPWR Advisory Committee made up of the data sharing partners and established to assist in the support of the statewide longitudinal system. The NPWR team also work very closely with DBDriven, the information technology service provider for NPWR, who acts as an extension of OWINN to work with current partners on reporting requirements and working to inform potential new partners on the capabilities and services that NPWR can provide to an organization.

The past year has seen tremendous growth in NPWR (see below for NPWR website traffic growth). NPWR has been a collaborative partnership with the Nevada Department of Education (NDE), which includes Adult Education data; the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE); and, the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR). Since the last half of 2022, the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (Nevada DMV) and early childhood data from the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) under the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) were onboarded in NPWR. Two additional data sharing partners, the Nevada Department of Veteran Services (NDVS) and the Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC), have also joined the NPWR community and working to onboard their identified data.

We are excited to release the second NPWR Research Grants, with $230,000 available to support research studying Nevada’s most challenging policy problems in the areas of workforce development, economic diversification, and education. The goal for this grant is to award collaborative research projects and students starting in December 2023 with an end date of June 30, 2024. This research will be published and made publicly available through the NPWR website and shared during the NPWR Research Forums in December 2024.
