The labor market supply/demand report (Excel file) provides a gap analysis for detailed occupations along with comparisons of online job postings and Employment Security Department data on unemployment insurance (UI) claimants. The annual version takes into account the number of graduates from colleges and universities entering the workforce as well as the number of UI claimants.
Supply-demand report update:
In February 2020, Help Wanted OnLine®, the company that provides LMEA with job posting data, changed their data source from Gartner Analytics to Burning Glass Analytics. This change has a significant number of effects on our job posting data, including the historical information that we provide each month for the Supply-Demand Report. There has been no alteration to how the report functions; and, while there will be some differences in the number of total and new job postings and some changes in how the job postings are classified, we believe this will lead to more robust data for all customers of the Supply-Demand Report. More detailed information is available.
The "Supply and Demand" tab shows report tables categorized by the latest month’s UI claimant and Help Wanted OnLine® (HWOL) data by occupation (O*NET/SOC codes) at the two- and three-digit level. The contract between Help Wanted OnLine® and Employment Security does not allow this job posting data to be disaggregated to an individual county level unless the Workforce Development Area (WDA) is solely constituted of one county. The supply/demand report reflects this by allowing the user to select a WDA but not individual counties.
The tables display the number of new online postings in the month compared to the number of UI claimants. Claimants are categorized by the occupation they are claiming against. For those interested in performing additional analysis using the Supply Demand data, we have also uploaded the data tables the report is built on here.
The annual version of the supply/demand report takes into account the number of graduates from colleges and universities entering the workforce as well as the number of UI claimants.
