Labor market information aggregator shows relationship between labor supply and demand

AUSTIN – The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) today announced the launch of TexasLaborAnalysis.com, an online suite of labor analysis tools designed to provide insight into Texas’ labor supply and demand. Texas Labor Analysis (TLA) presents wage data, occupational projections, current labor supply, Help Wanted Online job posting data, and more.

“Texas Labor Analysis provides easy to use labor market supply and demand snapshots that inform the collective efforts of Texas Workforce Solutions, educators, employers and economic developers to prepare our current and future workforce for high demand occupations and to close skills gaps,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “This new online suite of tools will offer valuable insights to students about high demand careers and aligns with the Tri-Agency commitment to provide better information in support of the job creation efforts of Texas employers.”

The website tool includes a “Top Statistics” feature that provides fast access to reports containing the most commonly requested data. TLA empowers users to create in-depth reports for aggregated or single regions, showing labor demand, labor supply, or the gap between the two.

“Texas Labor Analysis will help provide employers, job seekers, economic developers, educators, and our local workforce partners with a real-time display of supply and demand of occupations by their region with one click,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs. “Labor market data remains essential in helping bring Texans and Texas employers together to grow our economy.”

TLA combines data provided by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, online job postings from Help Wanted Online, TWC’s Labor Market and Career Information department in cooperation with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other up-to-date TWC workforce data. Using these data, TLA compares current labor demand and supply for user-selected occupations by Local Workforce Development Area. The comparison offers a near real-time display of an occupation shortage or surplus by region.

Employers, individual workers, local and statewide economic developers, educators and schools and Local Workforce Development Boards will all find TLA useful. The online application meets federal accessibility standards and adapts to tablet and smartphone screens.

“I am proud that our efforts resulted in bringing another innovative tool to the state of Texas,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Labor Julian Alvarez. “The Texas Labor Analysis tool will provide key insights into Texas labor market supply and demand offering information on hundreds of different jobs, how much they pay, how popular they are and will be, how many openings there are via Help Wanted Online job posting data, and more.”
