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 job seekers and students
LMI is used to make informed career and employment decisions. LMI can help you prepare for the job market and make strong career choices that will ensure your future success.
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.
For researchers
LMI is used to assess the health of the economy and forecast future economic trends. Many public entities use LMI to make policy decisions and allocate financial resources.
