Labor Market Supply and Demand Analytics

These reports are designed to provide a deeper understanding of the labor market supply and demand trends – in the Chicagoland region, Illinois and the nation. The insights can foster thinking for curriculum, program, process and policy development – providing relevance throughout the Dominican community. Our intention in OIE is to encourage the use of data like these for program improvement, program development, student support/advising and institutional planning/strategic thinking.

Please reach out to OIE ( if you would like a more customized version of one the reports posted here.
