Online Job Demand Up 169,000 in August, The Conference Board Reports
Date:8/31/2009

t numbers are available) was at 4.39, down slightly from 4.47 in May and indicating that there are now just under 4.4 unemployed workers for every online advertised vacancy. Among the states, the highest Supply/Demand rate and the highest recorded since the HWOL series began in May 2005 is in Michigan (10.83), or close to 11 unemployed people for every advertised vacancy. Other states where there are over 6 unemployed for every advertised vacancy are Indiana (7.54), Kentucky (7.40), Mississippi (6.84), Ohio (6.62), South Carolina (6.26), North Carolina (6.16), and California (6.06). North Dakota (1.47) and Alaska (1.56) have some of the lowest rates.

It should be noted that the Supply/Demand rate only provides a measure of relative tightness of the individual State labor markets and does not suggest that the occupations of the unemployed directly align with the occupations of the advertised vacancies.

OCCUPATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Among top 10 online advertised occupations, healthcare jobs post the largest increases

Labor demand continues to remain well below year-ago levels for most occupations

Healthcare Practitioners and Technical occupations, the largest category in terms of volume, rose 52,700 in August to 574,400. "Advertised vacancies in this occupational category have been declining, and the August increase is the first significant monthly rise we have seen in over a year," said Levanon. On the other hand, labor demand for Healthcare Support occupations has remained relatively steady over the last two years and in August rose 16,500, or 16 percent, to 117,800. Individual occupations showing increases included physical and occupational therapists, physical and occupational therapist assistants, speech-language pathologists, home healthcare aids, medical assistants, and registered and practical nurses.
