Job Vacancy Statistics Users Group 


The provision of current and local job vacancy data from employer surveys has been shown to be an effective strategy for meeting the need of many customers, especially Workforce Investment Boards and economic development agencies, for local information on current demands for skilled workers.

Existing job vacancy surveys have emerged from innovations by individual states and by the earlier Job Vacancy Statistics Work Group, led by Minnesota. The Work Group developed the Job Vacancy Statistics System, consisting of software components, data collection instruments, training, and marketing. These tools, as well as modifications of them and other tools developed separately, have been used by at least 14 states in collecting job vacancy data.

The Job Vacancy Statistics Users' Group is responsible for developing and implementing a collective state strategy for job vacancy data production, including strategies for financial support for providing data collection methods and tools and training.
