Labor market information (LMI) is the description of the interaction between occupations and employers. It is information that describes and interprets how a labor market is functioning and identifies available labor resources and employment opportunities. LMI and career information provides statistics and analyses on the dynamics of the Texas labor market and informational products designed to support informed educational and career decisions.
