The Labor Market Information (LMI) Unit is the central state resource for the collection, analysis and dissemination of information pertaining to the Rhode Island labor market. LMI is responsible for a wide range of labor market analysis and research involving industry trends, occupational projections, wage rates, labor force movements, population shifts, and demographics.

LMI operates five federal/state programs in cooperation with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). These data collection programs include: Local Area Unemployment Statistics (LAUS), Occupational Employment Statistics (OES), Current Employment Statistics (CES), Quarterly Census of Employment & Wages (QCEW), and Mass Layoff Statistics (MLS). The information gathered from these programs is the basis for most LMI products.
LMI also extracts statistical information from Unemployment Insurance and Temporary Disability Insurance administrative records to assemble reports on the diverse activities of the Department.
