PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The Department of Labor and Regulation says users of its new virtual labor market data system can view information including occupational wage estimates and labor force and unemployment rates.

The agency said Tuesday that the new tool offers better functionality than the previous application.

Browsers can also access statistics on employment, earnings by industry and population and the Consumer Price Index. New features include the ability to view or export maps and graphs of selected data.

Labor and Regulation Secretary Marcia Hultman says the new online resource is a great addition to the agency’s services meant to help career planners, businesses and people looking for jobs.

Hultman says the tool is technologically advanced but was designed to be intuitive to use.
