LMI Tuesdays

LMI Tuesdays is a 30-minute discussion of Labor Market Information (LMI) and how to use it in your work hosted the first or third Tuesday of each month. Each session is led by analysts from NC Commerce's Labor and Economic Analysis Division (LEAD) online via MS TEAMS starting at 11:30am. Attendee questions on the session or any LMI-related topics are encouraged.  No registration is required. 

It's about helping people understand labor market information and how it can be used in their work. With each session, we hope to remove the mystery around data, how it can be used and where to access it. Whether you join to listen to the presentation, or want to ask a question you are welcome.

The next LMI Tuesdays session will be held Tuesday, July 16. At that time, LEAD economists will share the latest "Economy Watch" session and will review a variety of economic indicators to help you understand current trends in labor force participation, hiring and firing, working from home, and job satisfaction.

The first Tuesday of each month's session is available here.
The third Tuesday of each month's session is available here.
