Labor Market Information (LMI)

Understanding Future Career Needs

Labor market information (LMI) is a critical yet often overlooked component of academic and career planning. LMI can help school districts develop cutting-edge CTE programs by uncovering the skills students will need in the future. In addition, LMI can help students understand which jobs are most likely to be available and well-compensated. This page provides state and regional LMI for both school districts and individual educators to help students become college and career ready!

Attention Perkins V Applicants:

You can use the Industry Projection Reports and Emerging Trends as a part of your Comprehensive Local Needs Assessment (CLNA) for any locally developed career pathways. 

State-Endorsed Regional Career Pathways

Did you know that state and regional labor markets have already been analyzed and used to develop State Endorsed Regional Career Pathways? Soon everyone in the state will have access to these employer-led and supported pathways. For more information, go to the Pathways Wisconsin webpage.
