Labour Market Information

Labour Market information is information relating to occupations and industries, such as job numbers and salaries. It can also include a range of more specific details, such as educational levels for occupations, workforce demographics, and numbers of establishments in particular sectors.

The purpose of LMI is to use current and historic industry and occupation data for labour markets, in order to enable us to better understand the trends, structure and demands of those economies. The information is also useful as it can be used to forecast what the future might hold for particular industries, occupations or geographical areas, based on past and current trends.

Such information can be of inestimable value to students and any organisation that are seeking to understand the structure and the possible future of a particular labour market - and will help students and business make better decisions in the future.
