Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Data Series Now Available

New Hampshire Employment Security is pleased to announce the availability of the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) data series.  LED is a voluntary partnership between New Hampshire Employment Security and the U.S. Census Bureau to develop new information about local labor market conditions at low cost, with no added respondent burden, and with the same confidentiality protections afforded census and survey data.  LED data products include Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI), Industry Focus, and OnTheMap.

The Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI) provides measures of the performance of local labor markets. These indicators include Total Employment, Net Job Flows, Job Creation; New Hires, Separations; Turnover; Average Monthly Earnings, and Average New Hire Earnings.   These industry measures are available for multiple levels of geography, including New Hampshire, metro area, workforce region, and county. 

The Industry Focus tool allows users to create customized rankings of industries in their county/region based on any of the Quarterly Workforce Indicators. It can quickly answer questions about the top ten industries in a region based on growth of hiring, the top industries in number of new hires, and which industries lead in growth in average monthly earnings.  Industry Focus also produces charts and tables of the characteristics of workers in specific industries.

OnTheMap is a dynamic web-based mapping tool showing where people live in relation to where they work with reports on age, earnings, industry distribution, and local workforce indicators.  It allows users to draw their region of interest on the map, and then get a visual display of where the labor pool for that region resides. Employers can use OnTheMap to get a visual picture of the concentrations of labor pool in their region and their demographic characteristics and workforce indicator statistics.  Jobseekers can use OnTheMap to produce a map of their city or county of residence and the geographic concentration of jobs within commuting distance.
