Dashboard of Major Employers

When collecting community data, I often get asked what businesses are in the area. Often that data is only available from subscription databases, so I was thrilled when I heard about the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development LMI (Labor Market Information) dashboard that provides free access to major employers in a city or village. Here are steps to do a search:

Go to Wisconsin LMI Data Access 

https://www.jobcenterofwisconsin.com/wisconomy/query

LMI-4

1.  Click on the Create Visualization tab

2.  Select Category = Business AND Sub Category = Employers By Area - Info Group

3.  Click on Generate Visualizations

4.  Hover over the Employers - Major Employers visualization AND  Click on Load Visualization

LMI-6

5.  Select your County

6.  Select your City (or Village)

7. Select an employer to get details about the business.

Want more details?  Check out the other LMI visualization, Employers - Size and Contacts, to view businesses by NAICS sectors such as construction, education, health care, manufacturing, etc.
