Regional Workforce & Labor Market Assessment

This Labor Market Assessment report was produced for the Greater Jackson Alliance (GJA) by Younger Associates (YA).  This assessment summarizes the labor market conditions of a 17 county region in south-central Mississippi consisting of the following counties:

 

Adams Jefferson Simpson
Amite Lawrence Walthall
Claiborne Lincoln Warren
Copiah Madison Wilkinson
Franklin Pike Yazoo
Hinds Rankin  

 

This study uses information obtained through surveys of labor-related issues among employers and among the working age population in the region, and a review of key secondary statistical information. The employer survey gathered information from area employers concerning the availability, quality, and cost of labor; the quality and utilization of educational institutions and training resources; the role of retirees in the workforce; and the future demand for workers. The labor supply survey results allowed us to quantify and profile the region's labor force and its hidden labor resources.
