Marco Lucero is a Workforce Development Analyst at the Anaheim Workforce Investment Board in California. He sent us the following message about the value he finds with Analyst, EMSI’s web-based labor market analysis suite — specifically in relating regional industries to the occupations that staff those industries.
Analyst has exceeded my expectations. I have run dozens of reports and received great feedback from everyone with whom I have shared the reports. The time-savings in generating reports is mind-boggling. I ran through a scenario nearly two years ago trying to tie changes in industry growth to occupation staffing patterns. The exercise took me and an intern about a month to a month and a half to complete using publicly available data at the county-level. I re-did the exercise a couple of weeks ago for customized geographies and different time periods at different industry and occupation category levels in about two hours. Truly amazing.
We are very happy with the service. I am excited about the enhancements in Analyst 2.5.
