Increasing Public Labor Market Information Capacity to Provide Sub-State and Skills Projections Data
CREC is collaborating with the Projections Managing Partnership (PMP) to increase the capacity of the public Labor Market Information (LMI) system to provide relevant substate and skills data for education and training providers. The project will inventory substate projections availability among states, review and document methods for developing substate projections, add new substate projections content and toolkits to the PMP and LMI Institute websites, document methods for assessing automation exposure for occupations, and make recommendations for improving the design and production of employment projections. This more localized, forward-looking labor market information from state LMI agencies helps advance evidence-based decision making about education and training requirements by policymakers, educators, workforce system trainers, and private training providers.
