The Labor Market Information (LMI) Central community (or LMI Central, for short) is intended to be a leading source of information and collaboration on the wide array of resources and information products available to guide you in your data-driven decision-making. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) operates the site, but it includes data both from, and for, all of its workforce network partners.
The Regional Labor Market Context
All workforce activities and education programs operate within the context of a regional labor market.
Therefore, labor market information is critical in ensuring interventions are relevant to the labor market.
With that in mind, we realize that LMI is important to all types of data users - workforce professionals, system innovators, workforce analysts, labor market specialists, workforce board planners, career counselors, training providers, outreach and recruitment specialists, business services representatives, case managers, program directors, one-stop career center staff, and consumers alike.
