TexasLMI.com to replace TRACER2.com as main conduit for monthly data

AUSTIN- The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) recently launched a new website that will make accessing the agency’s statistics easier. The new site, www.TexasLMI.com replaces TRACER2.com and features a user-friendly dashboard with intuitive navigation.

The site brings the state’s economic data into the twenty-first century with mobile compatibility, which allows Texans to access the information on-the-go. In addition to compatibility across all platforms and availability, the new site offers improved navigation and intuitive workflow, making Texas’s labor market data more accessible.

“Our new LMI website ensures the most up-to-date labor market data is readily available to employers throughout the state, and creates a simplified platform to find this information,” said TWC Chair and Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs. “I encourage all Texas employers to utilize this website as it can be helpful with wage analysis, economic trends, and projected occupations. This is one of many tools that Texas uses in order to keep our economy competitive.”

Using www.TexasLMI.com, business and workers can capitalize on the site’s easy-to-use dashboard to monitor staffing trends, annual growth rate and latest economic indicators for the state. TexasLMI.com is now the state’s central hub for monthly labor market data including the unemployment rate, Total Nonagricultural Wage and Salary data.

“This platform was designed as a tool to be used by all, including job seekers, employers, students and economic developers,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Labor Julian Alvarez.  “It is our hope that Users will become familiar and use TexasLMI.com and other free resources on our website to explore career opportunities, trends and wage data.”

The TWC’s Labor Market and Career Information (LMCI) Department is a statewide and national leader in making career information and labor market data available online to the public. In 2017 and 2018, LMCI’s Texas Career Check (www.texascareercheck.com), Texas Reality Check (www.texasrealitycheck.com), and Texas Labor Analysis (www.texaslaboranalysis.com) have all won awards from the Texas Center for Digital Government. The former website, TRACER2.com was retired on Feb.19.

“The versatility of this new website removes barriers of compatibility and accessibility for all Texans,” said TWC Commissioner Representing the Public Robert Thomas. “It equalizes access to information and empowers Texans to understand the current and future economic climate of their community. Any tool overall that shares insights into labor market information also helps bridge our workforce and our employers and that equals accelerated economic growth, a resilient and adaptable workforce, and stronger communities.”
