Abbreviations.  We have used the standard U.S. Postal Service abbreviations for the states.  LMI means labor market information.  “Locality coverage” means the type of locality for which a state publishes employment projections. Other abbreviations, in alphabetical order, are BOS for balance of state (e.g., the remainder of a state outside of other locales for which projections are published); MSA for Metropolitan Statistical Area (commonly used by the U.S. Census Bureau); and WIA for the Workforce Investment Act’s geographic area.  The term “workforce development” is generally used to refer either to WIA programs or to government employment and training programs generally.  Note that in some cases the listing of multiple types of localities does not necessarily mean that the state produces full information for each type of locality; some states instead define localities using a combination of methods (e.g., MSA, county, balance of state).

* In addition to workforce areas, Illinois also has long-term 2006-16 projections for both industries and occupations for MSAs, counties, economic development regions, community college districts, and education for employment areas (see the main projections link).
** Selected short-term projections are posted online but not included here because for the latest projections posted, historical data are now available.  Detailed industry data (except for agriculture) are available for states and many localities from the BLS Current Employment Statistics program (for customized searches use State and Area Employment, Hours and Earnings).  Data are available no more than about two months after the reference month.  Detailed occupational for states and many localities are not as timely, and are only issued for one reference month in a year, generally available about one year later:  see BLS Occupational Employment Statistics.  For further information on available state and local workforce data see ETA’s Guide to State and Local Workforce Data.
