An annual report on West Virginia oil and gas employment lack required data on the residency of workers.
Department of Commerce spokeswoman Chelsea Ruby tells the Charleston Gazette that WorkForce West Virginia tried to obtain the residency data from the Division of Labor and the Office of the Insurance Commissioner. But she says the labor agency's data is incidental and wouldn't represent an accurate sample. The insurance commissioner doesn't collect the data.
