Labour Market Information

LMI Explained

LMI stands for Labour Market Information. LMI is available at local, regional, national and even international level.

A generally accepted definition of LMI is:

‘Any information about the structure and working of a labour market, and any factors likely to influence the structure and working of that market, including: jobs available, people to do those jobs and changes in the business environment.'

Put simply, there are 3 main parts to labour market information:

  • The Demand Side (the jobs available)

  • The Supply Side (people to do the jobs available)

  • Forces affecting the labour market (e.g. legislation)
