Featured Reports and Tools

Pennsylvania’s Keystone Statistics Dashboard (KeyStats)

The Keystone Statistics (KeyStats) Dashboard presents a variety of key economic indicators for Pennsylvania and the United States. The dashboard is separated into two sections, with the first having a focus on employment data between the state and the nation as well as GDP and federal interest rates. The second section solely focuses on macroeconomic data for the United States such as consumption, production, and housing investment statistics. This KeyStats dashboard is best used as a visual one stop shop for data that can be used to gain insight into how our economy is doing. Most of the data is updated on a monthly basis with the exception of a few quarterly indicators.

Indiana’s Hooisers by the Numbers – Labor Market Information Dashboard

As a thank you to employers for submitting occupation codes, Indiana created this dashboard filled with customized information that will connect employers with the latest data about your industry.

The state did not start collecting occupation information until 2019. With this new occupation information, the state will be able to better analyze the staffing patterns, and also better understand the workforce and education ecosystem.

Does your state have a projections dashboard?

Share it with us! We’d love to see it and feature it in the monthly LMI Insider.
