Outreach Programs

The Labor Market Information (LMI) Division offers training sessions on workforce data produced by DEW and other federal and state agencies, as well as the tools and resources available to access them. Sessions are available to South Carolina’s workforce development partners, educational institutions, state agencies, local governments, media organizations, economic development groups, the business community, and other stakeholders. Presentations can be done virtually or in person.

LMI also offers data research services. If you have questions about our state's workforce, please reach out to us. We're happy to help you find the insights you need.

If you or your organization has an interest in accessing these opportunities, please email LMI at
