Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey : Overview
The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) program of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) produces monthly and annual estimates of job openings, hires, and separations, including quits, layoffs and discharges, and other separations. Estimates are published for nonfarm establishments in the private sector as well as federal, state, and local governments in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
JOLTS estimates can be used to gauge labor demand, monitor the dynamics between hires and separations, and measure labor turnover.
