In 2016, the Department of Labor contracted with the Bureau of Labor Statistics to develop a survey to measure employer provided training. This document is a high level summary of studies that provide the details of the proposed approach, including: results from exploratory establishment interviews, results from cognitive interviews with establishments (including proposed survey form), results from cognitive interviews with employees (including proposed survey form), and the proposed sampling plan. Papers providing the results from cognitive interviews with establishments, cognitive interviews with employees, and the proposed sampling plan are also available in the Statistical Survey Paper catalogue.
