Abstract

Charlotte Mueller and Matthew Balazik (2001) "Ensuring Data Quality in the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey"

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has begun a new survey to collect and publish job openings and labor turnover data. This new survey, the Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS, began collecting data in March 2000 and will soon publish estimates for the first time. Published estimates will include rates and levels for job openings, hires, and separations. These data will add to the United States employment picture drawn by two other BLS products: the employment level and the unemployment rate.
