In the United States, job openings refer to all positions that are open (not filled) on the last business day of the month. Job openings are part of the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS). The survey collects data from around 16400 nonfarm establishments including retailers and manufacturers, as well as federal, state, and local government entities in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The JOLTS assesses the unmet demand for labor in the U.S. labor market and gained attention in 2014 as favorite labor market indicator of Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen.

Latest Updates

The number of job openings in the US rose by 749,000 from a month earlier to a new series high of 10.934 million in July 2021, and well above market expectations of 10.0 million, adding to signs of labor supply constraints. Job openings increased in several industries, with the largest gains in health care and social assistance (+294,000); finance and insurance (+116,000); and accommodation and food services (+115,000). The openings level was up in the Northeast, South, and West regions. Meanwhile, the number of hires declined by 160,000 to 6.667 million, while total separations including quits, layoffs and discharges, and other separations rose by 174,000 to 5.786 million.
