Employment Index - Nation

Last Updated 12/21/2012

A monthly analysis from Monster.com of online job demand nationwide based on a review of opportunities culled from a selection of corporate career sites and job boards, including Monster. The Monster Employment Index launched in 2004. The baseline value of 100 represents the average monthly job counts during the first 12 months of the Index. In this manner, the Index measures changes in online job availability over time. Monster announced it will no longer release the Monster Employment Index as it feels an index that measures only online job posting activity is no longer an accurate measure of its business, nor the market at large. The Daily Transcript is researching a possible replacement to this index.
