Employer Database

The Employer Database is a privately collected database containing information from over 12 million businesses throughout the country. This database includes the name, address, telephone number, contact person, and industry designation for each of these businesses. The ARC is responsible for the procurement and dissemination of the database to states for use in workforce development activities.

The State of Connecticut, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Analyst Resource Center (ARC) announced the signing of a contract with Infogroup for production of the ARC Employer Database on December 3, 2014. The contract, executed between the State of Connecticut and Infogroup, is for a period of three years with three possible one-year extensions.
