Illinois Employment Business System (IEBS)

​The Illinois Employment Business System is an economic landscape tool utilized by state and local workforce education specialists, and economic development specialists to view macro and micro-economic conditions in the state in order to make data driven decisions regarding self-sustaining jobs and long term business stability. Data from the system is utilized in state economic development and strategic planning.

The IEBS platform officially launched on November 30, 2020.  The IEBS team is planning for new features in future releases and this page will be updated with additional content and resources as they become available.

IEBS is a restrictive platform and only staff identified by the LWIA will be provided access at this time. If you would like access, please send a request to stating your name, organization, LWIA, and reason for requesting access.
