Traditional labor market information (LMI)
Source: Government sources (Bureau of Labor Statistics, US Census Bureau, etc.)
What it is: Occupation, education, and demographics data
What it can do: Traditional LMI is great for understanding the structure of an economy and getting a full picture of the major trends in jobs and wages.
Word to the wise: Traditional LMI lacks a certain level of detail and isn’t collected very often, so it is strongest when used in concert with job posting analytics and profile data (see below).
