"Labor Market Information (LMI) is an applied science; it is the systematic collection and analysis of data which describes and predicts the relationship between labor demand and supply." The States' Labor Market Information Review, ICESA, 1995, p. 7.
Year. Calendar year; first quarter through fourth quarter.
County of Employment. The county in which an individual was employed. If an individual had wages in more than one county in a year, they were assigned to the county where they had the highest wages.
Industry of Employment. The industry in which an individual was employed. If an individual had wages in more than one industry in a year, they were assigned to the industry in which they had the highest wages.
Gender. Men or women, as identified by linking wage records with other administrative databases, such as the driver's license file obtained from the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Individuals for whom demographic data were not available are classified as nonresidents.
Age Group. An individual's oldest age in a given year. For example, a person born in December 1976 would be counted as age 46 in 2021. Individuals were then placed into the age groups presented in the tables (00-19, 20-24, 25-34, etc.).
Number (N). The number of individuals with wage records in a given county or industry at any time during the year. Each individual is only counted once.
Age Percent. The number in a given age group divided by the total. For example, of the 137,294 women with wages across all industries in Wyoming in 2021, 28,245 (20.6%) were ages 25-34. In other words, 28,245 divided by 137,294 = 20.6%.
Gender Percent. The total number of individuals of one gender divided by the total number of individuals with wage records in that industry or county. For example, in 2021, 40.8% of all persons with wage records across all industries were women, 46.0% were men, and 13.2% were nonresidents.
Average Annual Wage. The average (mean) wages earned in a calendar year by gender, age, county, or industry.
