What is labor market information (LMI)?
Labor Market Information, or LMI, is any information related to the labor force and workforce. Data include labor force, employment, and unemployment estimates; occupational wages; projected job growth; educational attainment and requirements; and much more!
For researchers: LMI is used alongside other economic measures to assess the health of the economy and forecast future economic trends. Many public entities, such as education departments, use LMI to make policy decisions and allocate financial resources to in-demand and priority areas.
For employers: LMI is most often used to help make informed business decisions that are responsive to labor market demands and economic conditions, ultimately leading to better business success. Employers can find critical information on competitive wage rates, future labor market demand, and location-based data for development decisions.
For job seekers and students: LMI is used to make informed career and employment decisions. Whether the individual is exploring careers, attending school, and/or looking for work, LMI can help the individual be better prepared by understanding the opportunities and competition within the labor market, tailoring job applications to specific employers and job openings, and making good employment choices that ensure continued career growth.
