C2ER/LMI’s Ken Poole and Ron Kelly traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to train local workforce investment area staff from the City of Pheonix and Maricopa County on how to use labor market information to support their business services acitivities on behalf of the Arizona Commerce Authority.

Real-time labor market information is an emerging web tool for tracking the extent and nature of employers’ demand for labor by occupation, industry, and geography. Real-time LMI vendors, both for-profit and nonprofit, regularly collect and aggregate job ads and analyze them to extract industry, occupational, skills, certification, wage, and geographic information.
