Economic & Workforce Data
Economic, workforce, demographic, and training data and analysis
The Resource Center for CareerTech Advancement can provide reports using economic, workforce, demographic, and training data from Lightcast, which compiles information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the National Center for Education Statistics, O*Net™, the Social Security Administration, and other sources.
Reports can be run for the entire state or by region. A region can be a county, a technology center district, a group of counties, zip code, or group of zip codes. We can also create regions by radius or by driving time from a central point.
