The labor market supply/demand reports provide 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.
The supply and demand tab in the report tables categorize the latest month’s unemployment insurance 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 claimants. Claimants are categorized by the occupation they are claiming against.
The occupation gap analysis tab in the report is our newest feature for detailed occupations. This is the measured difference between the number of job postings via HWOL and the supply (the unduplicated count of UI claimants). This has been built around specific occupations based on their six-digit level O*NET code to give a more granular view of supply and demand based on online job postings per workforce development area (WDA).
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.
