Labor Market Information (LMI) is a key ingredient to understanding the workplace and the dynamics which influence job search and career choices. Labor Market Information can help you to evaluate options and consider opportunities. That information, coupled with an awareness of your own interests, likes, and dislikes, will give you a sense of direction. You can further define that direction into a goal by identifying the skills you have or are willing to develop.
The Connecticut Department of Labor and its Office of Research offer many valuable services for businesses, including the production of Labor Market Information. LMI includes professionally compiled and analyzed economic and labor market data. For businesses, this information is useful in product marketing, new location studies, wage analyses, and economic research. It is helpful in making better-informed decisions on expansion, investment, hiring, and other aspects of business management.
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.
This section of our Web site is aimed primarily at students, teachers, counselors, parents, and other individuals looking for information on occupations, educational and training opportunities, and job opportunities in Connecticut. Labor Market Information (LMI) can help you to discover opportunities and make informed career decisions. There are many sources of information available to help you. Those included here are only a fraction of the possibilities.
