Labor Market Information

The Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) has been designated by the Governor as the state's premier source for labor market information.

This information includes employment statistics, job forecast, wages and demographic characteristics. IDES collects, analyzes and disseminates this data in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and Employment and Training Administration (ETA).

The data help monitor and forecast national, statewide and local economic trends. They also help our customers, including employers and job seekers, make career, education and economic development decisions.
