Labor Market Information

Most of the nation's labor market information is produced by State Employment Security Agencies (SESA) in cooperation with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and other federal agencies for a wide range of users including employers, job seekers, policy makers and analysts, economic developers, economists, and planners. VEC economists prepare economic forecasts and reviews of recent trends for various VEC publications. Two new capabilities of the EIS division are economic impact analyses using the Impact Analysis for Planning (IMPLAN) model and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping. This information is all maintained on the LMI website at www.VirginiaLMI.com.
