DOL issues podcast guides to help individuals find and use labor market and workforce statistics.

Posted by Yung-Mei Haloski - On January 27, 2014 (EST)

The U.S. Employment and Training Administration has just issued six podcast guides to help individuals find and use labor market and workforce statistics. Topics are:

1. Unemployment data
2. Dislocated worker data
3. Employment projections
4. Industry data
5. Geographic data
6. Economic data

The podcast guides are written simply and presume no previous subject matter or statistical knowledge. They should prove helpful for a broad variety of audiences and purposes, including grant applications; targeting growing industries and occupations; pinpointing labor market hardship; state and regional planning; and assessing program effectiveness.

Each podcast is roughly 10 minutes long and includes a transcript of 2-3 pages. The podcast and transcript can be used either separately or together: the links can't be accessed from the podcasts, but the podcasts include visuals not available in the transcripts. Each topical presentation includes basic definitions, a brief historical background, links to the most important data sources, and practical tips on how to interpret and use the data and avoid common mistakes.
