Abstract

Charlotte Mueller and Mary Anne Phillips (2000) "The Genesis of an Establishment Survey: Research and Development for the Job Opening and Labor Turnover Survey at the BLS."

A new survey will be making its debut at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in 2001: The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS). JOLTS will fill a gap that currently exists in employment data. When used in conjunction with the existing employment count and unemployment rate, the job openings and turnover data will provide a more robust view of the U.S. economy.
