LABOR MARKET INFORMATION  

    [Don't Go Anywhere Without It.]

Labor Market Information should be one of the first stops in the preparation of your career planning and job search.  LMI or Labor Market Information aids you in making informed career, job search, and employment decisions. Facts and figures on jobs and trends affecting the workplace, including demographics on the labor force, employment and unemployment, industrial growth, occupational trends, and wage rates are available for your research. No occupational title should be selected without first exploring the 'statistical background' of the position that you are interested.

 

Most data originates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), a Division of the United States Department of Labor.  The BLS collects, analyzes, publishes and disseminates the statistical data about the labor market in the United States to aid you in understanding the economy and make informed labor market choices.
