Workshop - Green Jobs Survey Results Pt 1 (WA)

The Green Economy through the Employers’ Eyes - Green Jobs Survey Results Greg Weeks, Director - Labor Market & Economic Analysis, Washington State Employment Security Department and Bonnie Graybill - Deputy Labor market information Division Chief, California Employment Development Department California and Washington are among the four states that have completed large sample employer surveys to determine the extent of green jobs across state economies. The two surveys address somewhat different research questions, employ different methodologies, but had consistent results. The presentations will summarize the approach taken in these two state survey efforts, the methods employed, results, and lessons learned. As more states complete green jobs surveys, the lessons learned from the early state surveys should prove valuable as guidance to these later states.

Measurement and Analysis of Employment in the Green Economy

The Workforce Information Council (WIC) recently released the final report of its Green Jobs Study Group. The report is the first of its kind in providing key insights into green jobs definitions and analysis from various agency leaders who have already designed and executed studies to assess the green economy at the state level. As such, it is an immense resource for individuals working in labor market information, economic development, and applied research. There is, however, no single accepted definition for a green job, or an agreed-upon manner to analyze the green economy. This report details the thought process behind key green economy studies conducted at the state level, and lessons learned in how this ill-defined area of the economy is best studied. Key discussion items from the report include: • Before engaging in an analysis of the green economy, it is important to know what it is that you are trying to show in the study. Various state reports tackle the topic in different ways based upon the unique strengths and policy implications present. • Defining the terms of what entails a green job or green economic activity is not easy. States have defined the concepts in various ways. The report illustrates different definitions and provides guidance on how to establish definitions useful for measurement. • The survey method is common to quantify the green economy. The report provides guidance for an effective survey-based study, from the initial planning through the dissemination of the final report. • Depending on the purpose of the study, states are also using analytical and qualitative methods. Using data currently available and interview methods, states have compiled reports. Others, namely Michigan, have combined these methods with a survey in its analysis. • Areas for further development and an action plan for how to move forward with capturing green economy data in LMI are discussed.
