Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey

Data from a sample of approximately 16,000 U.S. business establishments, and the JOLTS survey covers all nonagricultural industries in the public and private sectors for the 50 States and the District of Columbia. These data serve as demand-side indicators of labor shortages at the national level. The availability of unfilled jobs (the job openings rate) and separations (the turn-over rate) are an important measure of the tightness of job markets, parallel to existing measures of unemployment.
