How can labor market statistics help with performance goals and planning help people l.jpg
How can Labor Market Statistics help with Workforce Informer websitePerformance Goals and Planning?(help people)

Goal: Training and placing people in high demand occupations

1st Step: Identify the high demand occupations in the local job market

Demand occupations l.jpg
Demand Occupations Workforce Informer website

How can we identify

high demand occupations?

  • Fast Growing?

  • Most Job Openings?

  • High Paying?

  • High Skill?

  • Low Turnover?

  • Training/Education Requirements?

Comparing arizona occupations see handouts 2 3 4 l.jpg
Comparing Arizona Occupations Workforce Informer website(see handouts 2, 3, & 4)

  • Short sample lists of occupations ranked high to low based on:

    • Growth rate (handout #2)

    • Job openings (handout #3)

    • Wage (handout #4)

  • Ranking allows for easier comparisons

    • Many fast growing occupations do not have the most job openings

    • Occupations with the most openings are not necessarily high paying

    • Education & training requirements can limit choices

  • Can we combine this in one report instead of three?
