About FutureWorks BI National Data


FutureWorks BI-National delivers access to the national public PIRL data set made available by the US Department of Labor. This data set is processed into FutureWorks BI's Data Warehouse and surfaced through a proprietary, subscription-based Website,  FutureWorks BI-National.  The data set covers a rolling four-quarter period and includes data for WIOA Title I and Title III activities. Data is refreshed each quarter upon release of the public quarterly PIRL file by the US Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. 

FutureWorks BI-National allows for detailed data exploration, analytics, and reporting with access to over 200 data elements that support calculated outcomes and participant flow. 

FutureWorks BI-National allows for benchmark comparisons to every state and Local Workforce Development Board in the country. Users can analyze results by almost every characteristic and service captured in the PIRL record. The data includes participants currently enrolled and exited from WIOA. 

Access to FutureWorks BI-National is included in State/Local Workforce Development Board FutureWorks BI applications and is also available as an individual subscription

FutureWork Systems highly recommends reviewing the documentation prior to conducting analysis. 

Important note about reportable individuals

Reportable Individuals are no longer required to have a Date of Participation and frequently have no Date of Exit. The application will show all Reportables, for whom records have been submitted, as having been Served throughout the rolling four quarters. The application makes the assumption that, for the purposes of showing information about Reportables, that the Date of Participation is the first day of the rolling four quarter period and they do not exit. All Reportable Individuals therefore are counted as Served, Enrolled and In Program when viewing totals for the year ( “All Quarters” ). 

To summarize, since all Reportables will appear to enroll on the first day, of the first quarter, of the current rolling four quarter data set, they will appear to be Served in every quarter but Enrolled only in the first quarter.  They never exit.

Performance Indicator Goals

Performance indicator goals used for each state are program year 2022 state goals. FY 2023 GPRA targets are used at the national level. 

Since the National data set is based on a rolling four quarters, the actual Measurable Skill Gains Indicator is only accurate when viewed for each quarter, aggregated four quarters is not a valid result. 


FutureWorks BI National includes data for historic WIOA program years, starting with Program Year 2020.  Documentation is available for historical data. We encourage you to review this documentation prior to using these datasets.
