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.

 

Job Openings

 

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

table 7.)
