ARC Seminar 2008: Transforming Information for the Future St. Louis, Missouri October 28-30, 2008 The OSDS (www.occsupplydemand.org) combines national and state-level occupational characteristics, projections, wage trends, licensing data, and industry employment (demand) with postsecondary graduation data (supply) for analysis of labor markets and training options. The OSDS provides clusters, units of analysis, that relate structured training programs to the occupations which their training graduates fill, that is, to occupational labor markets.www.occsupplydemand.org The OSDS contains high-demand, high-wage and high-skill occupations based on a state’s criteria in response to Perkins IV legislation. OSDS helps business and industrial analysts, program planners, workforce administrators and others determine labor availability and training programs offerings based on the supply demand mix. Les Janis, Director Georgia Career Information Center Georgia State University
