Labour Market Information or LMI is information about jobs and opportunities not only in your local area but nationally and internationally. Using LMI can help you plan for your future by telling you:
- HOW many jobs there are
- WHERE the jobs are
- WHICH skills employers are wanting now
- WHAT skills are needed for the future
- WHICH jobs are on the up and which are declining.
It is sometimes difficult to get accurate and up-to-date information, but on this page we will try to guide you to where you can find the information that you need. We will be developing more local information.

Understanding Local Growth
28 October 2010 - BIS economics paper no.7. Analytical paper to support the sub-national growth. A white paper produced by the Treasury. Understanding Local Growth is an important document for advisers, teachers and others. This analytical paper examines the evidence on differences in economic performance across England and discusses the key lessons from economic theory which underpins these policy changes. The scope of this paper is to set out broad analysis on economic drivers and disparities between places. It is envisaged that future analysis will build on this to explore further how the Government's reforms will shape local economic growth.
Technology and Innovation Futures
This is a forward look at a range of developments which have the potential over the next 20 years to support sustained economic growth in the UK. Based on interviews and workshops with 180 representatives from industry, research, international institutions and social enterprises, the report identifies 53 technologies which are likely to be important to the UK in the 2020s, because of the UK’s comparative advantage today, its future needs, or the size of the potential market. As the UK comes out of the economic downturn, it seems likely that future economic prosperity will derive in large part from seizing opportunities offered by technologies such as these.
