The The Montana Department of Labor & Industry launched a new Labor Market Information website in response to private sector demands for resources to drive evidence-based business planning. The new website can be accessed at

The new website utilizes responsive design to provide users with an interactive and dynamic online experience. The tool provides real-time data analysis functions allowing end users to customize reports that meet their unique needs.

Through the Main Street Montana Project, we have heard the call from business leaders for better labor market information that they can use to make decisions about business relocation, expansion, and diversification," said Governor Steve Bullock. "This new tool is just one solution that we have developed to modernize government and respond to the needs of businesses on Montana's Main Streets.”

The website includes information about industries, occupations and wages in Montana, including current employment statistics and health and safety statistics. It also provides career resources and links to a variety of publications, including labor studies, articles and posters.

"The development of Montana's new Labor Market Information website has been driven by the needs of the private sector, and the final product represents the high quality public services Montanans deserve from their state government," said Labor Commissioner Pam Bucy. "A skilled workforce is essential fuel to drive our growing economy, and this resource will help businesses access these workers and improve their productivity.”

A data engine developed through the governor's open data initiative ( powers the new Labor Market Information data tool. Through cross-agency collaboration, this project saved money by capitalizing on statewide efforts to modernize and bring more transparency to state government.
