The Human Resource data sets contain reformatted data from the M-Pathways HRMS and the legacy administrative data systems.

Information is available from July 1, 2001, forward and will carry all history from that date forward.

M-Pathways Human Resource Snapshot Data Set

Human Resource Snapshot data set tables are populated as of a given point in time to provide a static representation of portions of the Human Resource data set, and to provide additional fields that are used for specific internal and external reporting.

Contents

The tables in this data set are populated with information pertaining only to regular employees (no temporary employees) who held an active or paid/unpaid leave appointment as of the date the snapshot was taken. This data set supports reporting requirements from July 1, 2001, forward.

This data set is loaded once a month and includes data as of the first calendar day of the month. Each month's snapshot load deletes the previous month's load; however, the snapshot loaded in November of each year is not deleted. Snapshots taken in November are kept for ten years.

Usage

The Human Resource Snapshot data set is useful for:

  • Viewing, analyzing, or reporting on human resource data as of the current month.
  • Comparing the snapshot data taken each November with official university reports produced by University Human Resources (UHR) (e.g., Faculty Census and Data Displays).
  • Viewing an employee's current information (no history).
  • Developing Faculty Census or Workforce Trend Reports, especially after a few years of data are available in the data set.

Availability

The data set is generally available noon Sunday–11 p.m. Saturday, except when the data is being refreshed. Refer to the Refresh Schedule for specific refresh times.
