Labor Market Information
Labor Market Information (LMI) is employment data used to project emerging occupational trends, wages and salaries, and employment gaps in a region. The LMI tool described below can be used by students, parents, and school staff when engaging in college and career planning.
Please see the directions below on how to use the Labor Market Demand Spreadsheet, which has been provided by the California Community Colleges Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research. Data Source: CA Employment Development Department's Labor Market Information Division (EDD/LMID), long-term (10-year) Occupational Employment Projections for California and substate areas.
If you don't have Excel on your computer, you may find Labor Market Reports at this link.

** Once your sheet is downloaded, make sure to enable editing!
1. Location: Select the location of the LMI Data you are interested in viewing.
For example: Region = Bay Area, SubRegion = North Bay, County = Marin
2. Major Occupation Group: When selecting a group, the relevant occupations will show up at the top of the Occupation selections window. The same is true for the Skill selection window.
3. Reviewing Data: The filtered results will exhibit education level, employment growth, annual job openings, and wage/salary data for each position.
In order to make multiple selections per window, hold down the 'shift' key and make the selection. This is helpful to show more than one Occupation within a Major Occupation Group.
