ETA Real-Time LMI Environmental Scan of Vendors and Workforce Development Users

Several private sector entities have developed software that collects online job postings by "scraping" or "spidering" the listings from the Internet and organizing them into standardized data categories. These private sector entities have also built tools that permit analysis by those looking for current and detailed information on hiring trends and employer demand (including certifications and skill prerequisites). Diverse users including state and local governments, workforce boards, educational institutions, economic development entities, and research organizations license the RT LMI tools to better understand state, regional, and local labor market conditions. Many view RT LMI as an important new data source, but are unfamiliar with how best to use it and place it within the context of traditional survey-based LMI. In late 2013, ETA began a technical assistance project to increase knowledge of the RT LMI landscape and support selected states in building their capacity to utilize the new data sources. ETA began a technical assistance project to increase knowledge of the RT LMI landscape and support selected states in building their capacity to utilize the new data sources. ETA awarded a technical assistance contract to Maher & Maher, which is collaborating with Jobs for the Future (JFF) and the New York City Labor Market Information Service (NYCLMIS). As part of the technical assistance project, this Environmental Scan of Vendors and Workforce Development Users seeks to inform people in the workforce development system in particular about the most common uses, successes, and challenges of RT LMI. It provides an overview of major RT LMI vendors and their products and services. It also profiles how three states and three regional workforce development knowledge centers are using RT LMI to identify and address labor market issues.

2015 Labor Surplus Area List

The U.S. Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has issued the list of 2015 labor surplus area (LSA) list. A labor surplus area is a statutorily-defined locality that (with some exceptions) has experienced an unemployment rate that is 20% higher than the national average for 2 years. Some Federal, state and local programs use LSA designations to determine eligibility, so your state or locality may be able to benefit from understanding whether areas qualify as an LSA. ETA designates LSA's annually (effective each October 1st), with periodic updates to designate additional LSA's for areas that qualify under special circumstances. The Federal Register Notice announcing the 2014 LSA designations was published on September 16, 2014, and is effective from October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015. Click here for the PDF version of the FRN. The actual LSA listing, a map of LSAs and other related information (including the guidelines for previous years) can be found at FY 2015 Labor Surplus Area List http://www.doleta.gov/Programs/lsa.cfm.
