New!A new virtual labor market data system for retrieving data is now available. It looks much different than what you were used to, but has even greater functionality--such as the ability to view or export graphs and maps of the data you select. Follow the tips below to find the data you have used this website to find in the past. If you need assistance with this new system, please contact us; we will be happy to help.

Follow the steps below to retrieve data for the area(s) of interest. Additionally, click on the Time Period link as needed, then from the drop-down menu for Period Type, choose Annual or Quarterly data as you prefer. From the subsequent drop-down menu, you may choose the specific year(s) or quarter(s) of interest, holding down the control key as needed to make multiple selections.

Get nonfarm worker data from the virtual LMI data system using the links on this Web page.

Alternately, you may follow our instructions to access nonfarm data from the opening screen of the LMI virtual LMI data system.
