The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) collects, analyzes, and publishes a wide array of information about the state’s labor market. This information provides a snapshot of Georgia’s economy, job market, businesses, and its workforce. Data on jobs and workers, including labor force, employment and unemployment, industrial growth, occupational trends, and wage rates, are increasingly important to remaining competitive in the global marketplace.

Each industry has a unique combination of occupations, production techniques, inputs and outputs, and business characteristics.
