The Department of Workforce Services has launched a quarterly publication focusing on the business climate and labor markets of Utah and eight separate economic and geographic areas in the state.

The publication, Local Insights, is designed to provide relevant information for making decisions in the areas of regional planning, local economic development and policy design, the department said.

The first edition examines education and the workforce and how they are related to wages, industry and gender.

Local Insights is available for eight separate geographic areas of the state. A companion publication, Utah Insights, offers statewide economic and labor market analysis.

The publications are available at no cost by calling 801-526-9785. They also can be requested by emailing: wipublications@utah.gov. Or, they can be found online at jobs.utah.gov/wi/.
