About the Labor Market and Economic Analysis division


The Labor Market and Economic Analysis (LMEA) division within the Employment Security Department provides data and analysis of Washington state's employment conditions, economy, job market and workforce. Our tools and reports use Washington state labor market information to help job seekers, employers and public officials make informed career, hiring or policy decisions.

Contact an economist
We have one statewide economist and six regional economists serving local labor markets in Washington. All of them can help you find and use labor market data and fulfill special data requests. The regional economists are especially helpful answering questions about the labor market in your area. They serve professionals and organizations in their areas for WorkSource offices, workforce development councils, non-profit organizations, higher education, businesses and the news media.
