Labor Market Information (LMI) for Workforce Planning supports Regional Workforce Planning. The LMI available on this webpage is designed to assist Local Workforce Development Areas (LWDAs) in developing regional workforce development strategies that align with Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) priorities.
Each program year, LWDAs are required to develop and continually update the list of occupations that are in-demand in their region and area. LWDA regional demand occupations should align with REDC priority occupations, where possible. To discover which occupations are an REDC priority, consult your region's Progress Report. Check our Regional and LWDA Priority Occupations page for the current list of regional and local priority occupations, and the factors that each LWDA used to determine their list.
Each program year, LWDAs are required to develop sector-based workforce strategies that align with REDC priorities. Sector based workforce strategies build partnerships of businesses, training providers, community organizations, and other key stakeholders around specific industries to address the workforce needs of businesses and the training, employment, and career advancement needs of workers. The below LMI is designed to assist LWDAs in developing sector strategies that align with REDC priorities.

Significant industries were identified on the basis of job counts, wage levels, job growth and expected job growth based on industry employment projections.
