Real-Time Employment and Job Vacancy Data Repository

Because of the importance and growing use of real-time employment and job vacancy data, ETA has compiled a repository to better enable you to find, understand, and use this information. Real-time labor market information (LMI) is based on analyses of Internet-based job ads and other employment information, including resumes. Job vacancy surveys identify job openings (a term synonymous with job vacancies) via a survey of employers.

The Colorado LMI 101 Online Training Series

The Colorado LMI 101 Online e-Learning Training Series In 2006, LMI 101 was developed as a PowerPoint presentation for workforce center professionals, educators, business organizations and other partner agencies. This training was delivered face-to-face in training facilities and conference rooms across the state. By 2009, this training was redesigned for delivery as an e-learning series. The Abode Connect Presenter platform was already available in Colorado so that platform was used for the e-learning series. Colorado LMI 101 Online is divided into two Parts. Part I consists of six modules, each of which is ten minutes or less in duration. Part I is a prerequisite for Part II. The six Part I modules are: ? Module 1: Getting Started ? Module 2: Customers and Data Classifications ? Module 3: Industry Information and Unemployment Data ? Module 4: Occupational Statistics and Projections ? Module 5: Local Employment Dynamics ? Module 6: LMI Products Part II of LMI 101 Online consists of an activity that functions more like a game. It requires learners to answer a variety of questions similar to those asked by customers in One-Stop Centers. Upon completion of Parts I & II, the learner will be able to access a variety of data to address basic customer and agency needs for labor market information and have a functional understanding of our web site. We anticipate that this training will create an improved awareness of LMI data and its uses. Initial feedback from learners has been very positive. In addition, new courses will be developed as specific needs for training are identified. Dee Funkhouser Questions and comments on this e-learning experience are welcome. Please contact Dee.Funkhouser@state.co.us.

Real-Time LMI Repository

Because of the importance real-time employment and job vacancy data, ETA has compiled a repository to better enable you to find, understand, and use this information, organized into three sections: 1) Background Sources to help you to understand these new data sources; 2) Data Sources has links to take you directly to the sites where you can immediately access data; and 3) Studies Using Real-Time Employment and/or Job Vacancy Sources, lists major studies utilizing these sources. Please send suggestions for other resources to win-win.network@dol.gov.

Real-time labor market information (LMI) is based on analyses of Internet-based job ads and other employment information, e.g., resumes. Job vacancy surveys identify job openings (synonymous with job vacancies) via employer surveys. Although the two sources do not always coincide, they help answer how well the number of job openings (i.e., employer demand for labor) matches the supply of unemployed job seekers. Job vacancies or job ads are used to count job openings, by geographic area and by industry and/or occupation. Supply is usually measured by BLS data from the Current Population Survey. These sources are used for other purposes, but labor supply vs. demand is one of the most common and important uses.

Real-time employment analyses aggregate job ads using daily Web spidering, screen-scraping, and/or indexing of job ad Web sites. Once organized into a database, this information can be analyzed to provide insights about employer needs and demands concerning skills/competencies, credentials, educational attainment, previous employment experience, and the wages offered. Such information can also be used to identify emerging occupations.

Employment, training and education programs can in turn use these results to improve their programs, and to better advise individuals make making immediate job hunting and long-term career decisions.

1. Background on Real-Time LMI (Employment, Job Vacancy, and Administrative Data)

This is the first of three sections of ETA’s “Real-Time LMI Repository.”

It provides methodological and general background that will help you understand the available sources, their relative strengths and weaknesses, and tips for using them. This part of the repository contains three subsections: 1) Job Vacancy Surveys; 2) Real-Time Employment Sources; and 3) Administrative Sources of Data on New Hires. The last subsection is included because new job hires are a better measure of labor demand than job ads or openings (hiring data are also available in the BLS Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS, but not from real-time data).

Within each subsection, the sources appear in reverse chronological order (i.e., the newest ones appear first).

3. Studies, Publications, Tools, and Reports using Real-Time LMI

This is the third of three sections of ETA’s “Real-Time LMI Repository,” which includes major studies using these new sources.

This part of the repository contains three subsections. Because some studies have mined both data sources, these are included in the third subsection: 1)Real-Time Employment Sources; 2) Job Vacancy Surveys; and 3) Both Sources.

We have only included sources that provide studies gratis and directly (i.e., it is not necessary to submit a request to receive the study). The inclusion of private-sector or .com Web sites is for informational purposes only. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) implies or confers no endorsement on a company or on a specific product or service. Readers and information users should exercise an appropriate level of care and should be aware that the private-sector products and/or services may be copyrighted.

Data & Job Ads in Multi-Purpose E-Tools (NEW)

Data & Job Ads in Multi-Purpose E-Tools

Federal and state governments have created electronic tools (usually called E-Tools) that consolidate occupational data and/or online job ads. Job seekers and program staff who assist them can sometimes save considerable time by using multi-purpose E-Tools rather than the primary sources.

The U.S. Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has compiled a guide called, “Workforce Data, Job Openings and Other Information Available from Selected Multi-Purpose E-Tools,” which outlines what information is available from each source. This resource describes which E-Tool includes current job openings, employment projections, wage info, employment and unemployment data, education and training prerequisites, and much more.

This guide includes selected E-Tools from ETA, the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), U.S. Census Bureau, and state governments.

Vendor Product Review: A Consumer's Guide to Real-time Labor Market Information

Vendor Product Review: A Consumer's Guide to Real-time Labor Market Information

This Jobs for the Future report is a follow-up study to Aligning Community Colleges to Their Local Labor Markets: The Emergence of Online Job Ads for Providing Real-Time Intelligence About Occupations and Skills in Demand, issued by Jobs for the Future in November 2011. Based on a survey and interviews with 6 of the largest real-time LMI data vendors, the study examines 1) the history and improvements that have been made in real-time data; 2) the specific products and data elements offered; 3) the sources of the data and the efforts made to ensure quality, accurately code occupational classifications and other variables, and eliminate duplicative job postings; and 4) the fees charged.

The proportion of job postings which are duplicative and must be eliminated ranges from 60 to 90 percent across vendors. One major challenge for this study and other analyses of real-time data vendors is that they regard most of their procedures as proprietary information which they are unwilling to reveal, which is a major impediment to judging both the comparative and overall quality of real-time data. The authors conclude that “real-time LMI is a complement to, not a replacement for, traditional labor market information,” and users should “maintain a healthy degree of skepticism” toward real-time data.

Using Real-time Labor Market Information on a Nationwide Scale

Using Real-time Labor Market Information on a Nationwide Scale

This April 2013 review by Andrew Reamer of Jobs for the Future Examines the potential for broader use of real-time labor market data, including information from online job advertisements and other databases (including, e.g., resumes). The author conducted interviews with selected Federal agencies (including the Federal Reserve Board and the U.S. Labor Department’s Employment and Training Administration and Bureau of Labor Statistics) and private sector trade associations to ascertain these organization's views on the use of such real-time data for labor market research, occupational analyses, grants management, statistical modeling, and direct services.

Many but not all of the organizations believed that such data could be put to broader use, with both ETA and BLS singling out occupational data as one important objective. ETA also noted the potential use of real-time data for local labor markets, and by grant applicants for proposed projects.

The author noted that concerns about this data included duplicative job postings, insufficient coverage of some occupations, uncertainty about whether some postings represented actual job openings, and vague and incomplete information in some ads.

Industry-Occupation Mix of U.S. Job Openings and Hires

Industry-Occupation Mix of U.S. Job Openings and Hires

This Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco 2012 study uses data from JOLTS, state-specific job vacancy surveys, CPS, and HWOL. Results show that 1) during the Great Recession job openings for all occupations declined; 2) job openings rates and vacancy yields vary considerably across occupations; and 3) the majority of job openings in all industries and occupations are filled with persons who previously did not work in the same industry or occupation. For a more complete summary of the study’s findings, see Job Vacancies and Job/Skill Mismatches.

Over the following year, this training was delivered face-to-face in training facilities and conference rooms across the state. It was awarded NASWA’s 2007 LMI Communication Publication Award for excellence in the Product/Service category. By 2009, TAT funds became available to take this training product to an e-learning delivery system. The Abode Connect Presenter platform was already available in Colorado so it was used for the delivery of training content. The LMI 101 has two Parts. Part I consists of six modules, each of which are delivered in ten minutes or less. The purpose of these Modules is to deliver information and that will be used in Part II. The six Modules are: - Module 1: Getting Started; - Module 2: Customers and Data Classifications; - Module 3: Industry Information and Unemployment Data; - Module 4: Occupational Statistics and Projections; - Module 5: Local Employment Dynamics; and - Module 6: LMI Products. Part II of LMI 101 Online consists of an activity that uses the information provided in Part I and requires learners to answer a variety of questions similar to those asked by customers in their current workplaces. Upon completion of Parts I & II, the learner will be able to access a variety of data to address basic customer and agency needs for labor market information and have a functional understanding of our web site. We anticipate that this training will create an improved awareness of LMI data and its uses. Questions and comments on this e-learning experience are welcome.

Mismatch Unemployment

The authors conclude that mismatch across industries and occupations explains at most one-third of the total observed increase in the unemployment rate, whereas geographical mismatch plays no apparent role. The share of the rise in unemployment explained by occupational mismatch is increasing in the education level.

Real-time LMI Tools and Information

Real-time LMI (RT LMI) is information gleaned from a large number of online job postings to better understand state, regional and local labor market conditions. This resource serves consumers of RT LMI by exhibiting promising practices, online course materials, and a fact sheet. RT LMI most often refers to job posting analytics, which is software that collects job postings by scraping or spidering the listings from the Internet and organizing them into categories or data elements than can be used for analysis. This resource consolidates a number of resources and reports regarding use of RT LMI along with traditional LMI, as well as approaches used at the State and local levels.
