The Labor Market Information System - Disseminating Data You Need for Planning and Decision-Making
The intent of America's Labor Market Information System (ALMIS) is to disseminate information that aides decision-makers and promotes labor market-relevant, data-driven planning activities. Labor market outcomes end up being a win-win for everyone and help communities increase economic prosperity.
The Purpose of Labor Market Planning
The goal of labor market information planning is to advance the application and integration of data, analysis, and research into decision-making in national, regional, state, and local workforce and economic development efforts.
The Supportive Role of Labor Market Data Dissemination
By establishing and supporting an active national labor market data dissemination system, and infusing the LMI data it makes available into decision-making, the labor market information system can:
• Identify demonstrated methods and data sources that have made effective use of data analysis and research in shaping critical planning for regional workforce and economic development decisions and strategies
• Share practices, methods, and techniques that help to facilitate and improve the application and integration of data, analysis and research among data producers and data consumers, and
• Encourage and promote capacity-building and skill development on the part of data producers and consumers to make better use of established data sources and new tools and technology that support analysis and research.
