Vermont Job Gap Study

Study Phases

For years the debate about Vermont’s economic development has been dominated by too few people and too few ideas. And there has been little accountability because many of Vermont’s policies and programs have not been subjected to rigorous evaluation. That is why the Peace & Justice Center conducted the Job Gap Study. The goal with the study is to examine assumptions about economic development and job creation; provide information to help guide decision-makers; and recommend new indicators to measure the performance of the economy and the effectiveness of State programs and policies.
