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: 

Jurisdiction/Employer Type 
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."

Bargaining Unit 
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
