Workshop Description

Local Employment Dynamics

This workshop is designed for businesses, local planners and other data users who want to research local workforce and employment trends. The course content will include training on navigating the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) website and explore LED products including QWI Explorer, LED Extraction Tool, and OnTheMap.

These tools allow data users to analyze employment, hiring, job creation and destruction, earnings and much more for workers by industry, as well as display employment and home locations of workers on a map. The workshop provides users with access to a wealth of time series data pertinent to understanding the local labor market, planning, and managing and thriving in a competitive business environment.

There will be time for hands-on access of specific data, so bring your real-world questions and you'll be able to access the data you need as part of the learning process.
