Making A Clearinghouse Database Request
You can specify how you want the data retrieved from the Clearinghouse Database. Data is retrieved, and reports are generated based on parameters stipulated by the individual making the request. The following are some of the criteria that are typically used as parameters:
Employers are grouped according to political subdivision, funding source, or other distinguishing characteristics. Each grouping is designated by a jurisdiction and employer type code. (View List)
Data can be filtered by population according to the most recent federal decennial census, of each county, city, and township. For school districts, annually updated pupil enrollment figures are recorded as "population."
Reports are frequently requested for data extracted from contracts within a specific county, among a group of contiguous counties, or by some other grouping of counties.
A bargaining unit code is assigned to each contract entered into the database. Reports can be generated for a specific unit type such as safety (police or fire), teacher, blue collar, etc. (View List)
Over 300 job titles are monitored, based on the frequency in which they are found in contracts. (View List)
There are over 3,000 active collective bargaining agreements available online for quick access. Past collective bargaining agreements are available by making a public records request.
