Labor Market Data & Resources

What is Labor Market Information?

Data about labor supply and demand, earnings, employment and unemployment statistics, job outlook and demographics of the labor force make up what is known as labor market information. 

If you are in the career planning and exploration phase of your work search, labor market information is invaluable to you. Use it to find answers to the many questions you may have, to include: 

  • Which industries employ people in particular occupations?
  • Where, geographically, will I be able to find the job that I want?
  • What training and education are required for the occupations that interest me?
  • How much can I earn?
