LMIC Publishes Employment Projections

lmicprojectionsThe Labor Market Information Center is bringing us a new data product! Yay! Rejoice with me data nerds!

For the first time ever, the Labor Market Information Center (LMIC) has published employment projections by industry and by occupation for sub-state areas within South Dakota. The projections use a base year of 2012, with employment levels projected to 2022. The areas for which the data are now available include:

  • Statewide
  • Rapid City MSA
  • Sioux Falls MSA
  • Central Area
  • East Area
  • West Area

The table footnotes identify the counties included within each respective area.

Information available under Industry Projections includes:

Information available under Occupational Employment Projections includes:

In developing the sub-state employment projections, LMIC staff made every effort to publish the data at the most detailed level possible and for as many industries and occupations as possible while following stringent guidelines to ensure the reliability of the estimates and the confidentiality of data provided voluntarily by employers. If data is not available through the links above for a particular industry or occupation of interest, it is because it did not meet those standards.

More technical information about employment projections completed by LMIC is available on the website at http://dlr.sd.gov/lmic/projections_methodology.aspx. If you have follow-up questions, please call LMIC at 605.626.2314.
