Title: Maine Labor Market Areas 2005 GeoLibrary
Geospatial Data Presentation Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract: LMA contains polygon attribution identifying 31 Labor Market Areas for Maine. The dataset, provided by the Maine Department of Labor, contains LMAs numbers and LMA names by TOWN, GEOCODE, COUNTY and CNTYCODE. A Labor Market Area is a geographically integrated economic area within which workers reside and find employment within a reasonable distance, or can change employment without changing their place of residence (Maine Department of Labor, Labor Market Information Services (LMIS). Acton, Durham, Monmouth, Newfield, Saint George, Criehaven Twp, Isle Au Haut, and Matinicus Isle Plt are each associated with a nearby LMA the extension required indicated by a suffix "E" on the affiliate LMA number.
Purpose: Provides a digital map layer of Labor Market Areas in Maine for spatial analysis of labor market area information.

Use Constraints: Users must assume responsibility in determining the usability of this data for their purposes. Digital maps retain the accuracy of their source materials. The best use of data mapped at scales of 1:500,000 and 1:250,000 is in statewide planning and studies; at 1:100,000 in regional planning and studies; at 1:62,500 and 1:24,000 in detailed studies and local planning; and at 1:12,000 and 1:5,000 or larger scales in parcel level studies and detailed local planning. In the use of Maine GIS data, please check sources, scale, accuracy, currentness and other available information. Please confirm that you are using the correct copy of both data and metadata from the Maine GIS Data Catalog. Updates, corrections, and feedback, incorporated in the Maine GIS database are made in accordance with "Data Standards for Maine Geographic Information Systems", 2002 and coordinated by MEGIS

Overview Description:
Entity and Attribute Overview:
LMA contains 917 records attributed with identifiers for LMA, LABOR_MARKet area name, RESCODE, TOWN name, COUNTY, GEOCODE, GEOCODENUM, CNTYCODE, LAND, TAG, ISLAND, LURC. Acton, Durham, Monmouth, Newfield, Saint George, Criehaven Twp, Isle Au Haut, and Matinicus Isle Plt are associated with a closely affiliated LMA with an "E" extension.
Entity and Attribute Detail Citation: The ArcView shapefile and ArcGIS geodatabase formats, commonly used for Maine GIS data, carry default identifiers and attributes that are software generated and/or important for internal recordkeeping. These are listed here to avoid repetition for every layer, and may not be repeated in the attribute descriptions and definitions of each layer. Common software generated identifiers and attributes in Maine GIS data include: FID (feature identifier), Shape (feature geometry), OBJECTID and SHAPE_lengt. In addition, most GIS formats will carry fields for PERIMETER, AREA and/or LENGTH according to feature geometry. These fields are typically available by default, with the units based on coordinate system or projection units of GIS data. Most GIS software packages also provide a means to calculate these values. It is important to test any columns containing PERIMETER, AREA or LENGTH values before using them for analysis purposes. These important values can be carried from format to format and become out-dated. Verify that the values are correct. Also, in your GIS software, please view the properties of data layers for the map units used to calculate these fields, and for the units set for display purposes.
