The Supply and Demand for Middle-Skill Jobs in NYC: Focus on Healthcare
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 from 2:00:00 PM to  3:00:00 PM Eastern

The New York City Labor Market Information Service is conducting a multi-year study on the supply and demand of middle-skill jobs in New York City. This project addresses the workforce community’s concerns about preparing too many or too few workers for particular occupations. This first annual study focuses on 30 middle-skill jobs in two major occupational groups: healthcare practitioners and technical and healthcare support. Findings for over 70 other middle-skill occupations are reported in aggregate.

This webinar will cover the unique multi-indicator methodology NYCLMIS used to assess supply and demand, findings and implications, and recommendations for the workforce community to address worker shortages and surpluses.

KIVI: Visualizing Changes in Individual Economic Vitality
Tuesday, October 24, 2017 from 2:00:00 PM to  3:00:00 PM Eastern

The Kikai Individual Vitality Index (KIVI) aggregates and maps data from 1980 through 2010 to visualize the changes in California’s neighborhoods, by Census Tract, as the State evolved through a series of economic changes. Unlike other indices that are developed and maintained in semi-closed environments, Community Services2050 invites all qualified professionals to join the Kikai/KIVI Users Group and work with us to:

  • Refine the methodology and improve the index;
  • Propose narratives for the stories it tells; and,
  • Identify potential applications in public policy

Join the October C2ER and LMI Institute monthly webinar to learn more.
