WORKFORCE NEEDS SURVEY
The Workforce Needs Assessment Survey is an annual employer survey conducted by Iowa Workforce Development. Employers are asked to provide information regarding both their current level of employment and their current and expected job vacancies.
The goal of the survey is to collect data regarding the demand for workers and the skills required of workers, both statewide and regionally. This information can be used by economic developers, government officials, employers and educational administrators to guide their decisions on issues related to workforce development, training and employee recruitment programs.
Current data can be viewed and explored in the Tableau visualization above. If you have questions on the data above, visit the frequently asked questions or contact LMI using the information at the bottom of this page.
