Labour Market Information

What is labour market information and why is it important?

•Labour Market Information (LMI) describes all kinds of information used to make labour market decisions. LMI can be a compilation of detailed statistical data on jobs and salaries, employers and employees, sectors, current employment conditions and future trends.
•Data about employment by location and occupation, labour supply and demand, earnings, unemployment and demographics of the labour force make up what is known as labour market information.


The Careerometer can be used to explore and compare key information about occupations you are interested in to support the process of identifying potential careers.

The Careerometer widget provides access to a selection of headline data relating to pay, weekly hours of work and future employment prospects.

The data is organised by occupation: simply type in the title of the job you are interested in and the widget provides a series of options from which you can select the most relevant to you. Give it a go!
