What is LAS?

The Labor Availability Study is a questionnaire-based research project aimed at helping workers and businesses make more informed decisions about the workforce and job market in local areas. The Nebraska Department of Labor (NDOL) and the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (NDED) produce two reports for each surveyed area; one report based on data collected from households and another report using information gathered from employers. A Skills Gap report is then created by UNL’s Bureau of Business Research utilizing the results from the household and employer surveys.
