The Labour Market Information Portal (LMIP) may look a bit different, but its content and structure remain the same.

How LMIP is organised
Information on the LMIP is divided into three distinct channels. Each channel is based on a specific geography.
• Employment Service Area data (including Labour Market Regions)
• Labour Force Region data
• Small Area Labour Market data
You have two site navigation options
• clicking on the maps in a channel, or
• using the navigation bar
Using the Navigation Bar
The main navigation bar is located on the left hand side of the page. Click on the channel name and a sub-menu will open up underneath the channel heading. Simply click your way through to the level of geography that you need.
LMIP pages are information dense. Don't forget to scroll down a page to see all data relating to a given area.
You can also scroll down the navigation bar to see a list of charts and other geography available when you are in an ESA or LFR channel.
A bread crumb trail is towards the top of the page. The bread crumb trail shows you which part of the LMIP you are in. You can back-track your path through the site by clicking on the headings in the bread crumb trail, or jump by clicking a link in the trail.
