If you’re looking to expand your business or hire a position new to your company, you’ll likely want data to inform your decisions. Access to current and reliable information on the labor market is important, no matter the size of your business, the goods you produce or the services you provide.
Minnesota’s Labor Market Information Office collects employment, wage and industry information from throughout the state, then analyzes it to provide information employers and others can use to make decisions and plan for the future.
Here you can find up-to-date Minnesota data on some of our most popular topics:
- Current and historic employment and unemployment trends, updated monthly
- Average wages that employers pay in 800 detailed occupations, updated quarterly
- See how much a typical family needs to earn to afford a basic cost of living in different parts of Minnesota, updated annually
Beyond economic trends, you might also need to know information about the population where your business is located. The U.S. Census Bureau is a clearinghouse of population demographics and the Minnesota State Demographic Center provides data by county.
If you don’t know where to start, we have regional profiles, articles and blogs for every region in Minnesota.
