Center for Workforce & Research Information

The Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Program is an innovative new state/federal partnership with U.S. Census Bureau and the Maine Department of Labor to provide new demographic employment information, Quarterly Workforce Indicators (QWI). Local decision makers - employers, workers, transportation agencies, education and training institutions, and economic development agencies - increasingly need detailed local information about their economies to make informed decisions, but are frustrated by the lack of timely local data. The LED partnership works to fill critical data gaps and provide the type of workplace indicators needed by state and local authorities. Just as national economic indicators measure the performance of the overall economy, the QWI measure the performance of the local economy.
