Labor Market Information for Researchers - Overview
The Connecticut Department of Labor's Office of Research has long been recognized as a reliable, professional resource for economic data. Often referred to as Labor Market Information (LMI), that data is gathered and compiled for use by a wide audience for a variety of purposes. Those in our audience who are economists, researchers, planners, and policy makers often use our data to support conclusions and to inform and advise decision makers. These can affect the conduct of business and government, as well as the development of educational and other training opportunities.
Regional Labor Market Information Current employment statistics, labor force, employment and wages by occupation, detailed employment by industry, worksites by size, local area unemployment statistics, economic indicators, training by region.

Training and Education Planning System (TEPS) is a tool designed to aid the analysis and discussion of the demand and supply of talent in Connecticut’s workforce. It is intended to help identify where there may be skill shortages or surpluses in the labor market, and thereby guide investments in education and training programs by program planners and administrators, as well as by individuals considering career options.

Workforce Employment Dynamics an innovative program initiated by the Office of Research. Its purpose is to provide information on the characteristics of Connecticut’s jobholders, including detailed breakdowns by age, gender, industry, geographic region and wages earned. WED data will be useful for any initiative that relies on an understanding of the labor market, but can be especially valuable for workforce development policy formulation and planning.

Our LMI Publications page, where you will see the titles of all our publications, is another resource to support your plan. You can read these publications at our centers or order them for your continued use. They contain data (tables or charts along with text) which have been collected, analyzed, and organized especially for the convenience of our readers. Also, you can find a complete listing of available data on our LMI Data page.

The Office of Research occasionally undertakes special studies and projects of importance to the State on topics relevant to the labor market, workforce, and the workforce development system. See Occasional Papers & Reports for a complete listing.
