There were 3.6 million job openings on the last business day of
December, little changed from November, the U.S. Bureau of Labor
Statistics reported today. The hires rate (3.1 percent) and
separations rate (3.0 percent) also were little changed in December.
This release includes estimates of the number and rate of job
openings, hires, and separations for the nonfarm sector by industry
and by geographic region.
The number of job openings in December was 3.6 million, little changed
from November. (See table 1.) The number of openings decreased in
retail trade and was little changed in all remaining industries and in
all four regions in December. The level of total nonfarm job openings
was 2.4 million at the end of the recession in June 2009. (Recession
dates are determined by the National Bureau of Economic Research.)
The number of job openings in December (not seasonally adjusted) was
little changed over the year for total nonfarm, total private, and
government. Job openings increased over the year for retail trade,
real estate and rental and leasing, educational services, and health
care and social assistance but decreased in mining and logging and in
professional and business services. The Midwest region experienced an
increase in job openings over the 12 months ending in December. (See
