Labor Market Information

Knowing the market is critical for employer and employee alike.

Labor market information helps you understand the economy, job market, businesses and the work force.

The New York Department of Labor provides information on:

  • Employment and unemployment data
  • Wage data
  • Employment projections
  • Labor supply
  • Job teaming
  • Affirmative Action and EEO Occupational Data

With this, you can get a good idea of what sorts of jobs are available, or what sorts of workers, and what the trends will be like in the future.
