About the Source:

The Good Jobs Project, a research project by The Georgetown Center and JPMorgan Chase, is created to investigate the impact overarching structural economic change has had and is having on workers who do not have a bachelor’s degree.

The project will be carried out over three years and includes this website and companion research reports that show the concentration of good jobs for non-BA workers both nationally and by state. The site provides users with an interactive way to determine the level of economic opportunity for workers without BAs across the country. The project also focuses on the prevalence of good jobs by industry and occupation.

The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce is an independent, nonprofit research and policy institute that studies the link between individual goals, education and training curricula, and career pathways. The Georgetown Center is affiliated with the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy.
