Labor Market Information: Win-Win Network Community of Practice

Quick-Lesson Podcasts

Posted by LMI Win-Win Network - On February 27, 2012 (EST)


These step-by-step instruction guides will help you to identify and use labor market and workforce statistics. The presentations are written simply, and presume no previous subject matter or statistical knowledge. Each is comprised of a podcast roughly 10 minutes long plus a transcript of 2-3 pages. The podcast and transcript can be used either separately or together: the links can't be accessed from the podcasts, but the podcasts include visuals not available in the transcripts.

Some provide an overview of a topic (like unemployment data), while others explain in a step-by-step manner how to obtain a specific type of data or to use a specific data tool. Each topical presentation includes basic definitions, a brief historical background, links to the most important data sources, and practical tips on how to interpret and use the data and avoid common mistakes. The tool- and data-specific presentations are designed to enable you to obtain data by the end.

ETA intends to produce more of these presentations, but these exist now.
