Industrial Info's Labor Market Analysis Pins Down the Most Elusive Data on Wages, Demand

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2016) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- As shale-play production booms in North America and other sectors return to growth, demand is high for quality information on the U.S. labor market, particularly on where it is most costly. Industrial Info provides users with details on the risk and the reward of local labor, including the competing wage and per diem rates across numerous tight labor markets. Estimators can see where labor will be short and where wages and per diems may rise, and what other metropolitan areas are competing for the same labor. Industrial Info can "build" the forecast for any metropolitan area or region in the U.S. and Canada.

Industrial Info analyzes labor demand by estimating the hours required for current plant operations, planned project spending, and unit turnarounds and outages in all 12 industrial markets. Among the craft types identified are welders, pipefitters, electricians, operators, boilermakers, insulators, scaffold builders, carpenters, millwrights, instrumentation technicians, painters, iron workers and riggers.

Industrial Info also provides labor supply statistics for qualified journeymen at industrial plants. Data is gathered estimating the overall labor population by craft, then surveying union locals and non-union contractors in each region to determine how many qualified workers are available. The data is validated and grouped by metropolitan area, and revised quarterly.
