JOB OPENINGS AND LABOR TURNOVER – NOVEMBER 2014
There were 5.0 million job openings on the last business day of November, little changed from 4.8
million in October, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Hires (5.0 million) were little
changed and separations (4.6 million) declined in November. Within separations, the quits rate (1.9
percent) was unchanged and the layoffs and discharges rate (1.2 percent) was little changed. This release
includes estimates of the number and rate of job openings, hires, and separations for the nonfarm sector
by industry and by four geographic regions.

Job Openings
There were 5.0 million job openings on the last business day of November. The job openings rate was
3.4 percent. The number of job openings was little changed for total private and increased for
government in November. (See table 1.) Job openings increased for nondurable goods manufacturing
and for state and local government. The number of job openings was little changed in all four regions.
The number of job openings (not seasonally adjusted) increased over the 12 months ending in
November for total nonfarm, total private, and government. Job openings increased over the year for
many industries, including professional and business services, health care and social assistance, and

This method applies the CES employment trends to the seasonally adjusted JOLTS implied employment trend (hires minus separations) forcing them to be approximately the same. and errors from the employment benchmark data used in estimation. the two series are seasonally adjusted and the difference between the JOLTS implied employment change and the CES net employment change is calculated. or sampling error.

This change should be comparable to the net employment change from the much larger CES survey. or level of confidence. hires. However. there is a chance that the sample estimates may differ from the "true" population values they represent. Alignment procedure The JOLTS measures for hires minus separations can be used to derive a measure of net employment change. the JOLTS sample cannot capture job openings. Since these universe units cannot be reflected on the sampling frame immediately. Seasonal adjustment BLS uses X-12 ARIMA to seasonally adjust several JOLTS series utilizing moving averages as seasonal filters. A ratio of CES to JOLTS employment is used to adjust the levels for all other JOLTS data elements. many of these new units may fail within the first year. The estimates of job openings.

Next. and separations from these units during their early existence. the JOLTS implied employment change is adjusted to equal the CES net employment change through a proportional adjustment. and this variability is measured by the standard error of the estimate. JOLTS seasonal adjustment includes both additive and multiplicative models and REGARIMA (regression with auto-correlated errors) modeling to improve the seasonal adjustment factors at the beginning and end of the series and to detect and adjust for outliers in the series.Sample and estimation methodology The JOLTS survey design is a stratified random sample of 16. while preserving the seasonality of the JOLTS data. errors made in the collection or processing of the data.1 million establishments compiled by the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program which includes all employers subject to state unemployment insurance laws and federal agencies subject to the Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees program. The JOLTS estimates also are affected by non-sampling error. That means that there is a 90percent chance. In addition. The adjusted hires and separations are converted back to not seasonally adjusted data by reversing the application of the original seasonal factors.gov/jlt/jolts_median_standard_errors. rate estimates are computed from the adjusted levels. hires.
