One other major source of data on job availability, and one that is more comprehensive than the HWAI, is the Job Openings
and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) published by Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Data from the Job Openings
and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) reflect the continued impact that the recession which began in December 2007 (according to the National Bureau of Economic Research (1)) has had on the demand for labor and worker flows.
Another 33 percent of job openings
required an associate degree or some college, Brookings reported.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides labor turnover and vacancy data for four broad census regions (the Midwest, Northeast, South, and West) and the entire nation as part of its Job Openings
and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS).
Year-over-year, nearly 75 percent of industries are experiencing job opening
Dividing the level of unemployment by the number of job openings
results in a ratio which shows the number of job openings
per unemployed person.
