Labour Market Information

What Is Labour Market Information (LMI)? 

In short, it refers to any relevant information about the current and future state of the jobs market. 

LMI can include information like: 

  • The industries and businesses that operate in a certain location. 
  • The types of jobs that exist and what they involve. 
  • How many of those jobs there are. 
  • The skills that are currently or will be in high demand. 
  • Typical rates of pay. 
  • Career progression opportunities. 

Why is LMI important? 

LMI helps with career planning, job hunting, career progression, and changing career. When people have accurate and up-to-date information, they are better equipped to make an informed choice about their future career and to plan appropriately.
