Online Job Postings
This dataset aggregates online job postings by county and workforce development area (WDA) by several different categories, including:
To view a specific category, simply select the tab of the specification you’re interested in along the top of the page. Filters are located on the right-hand side of each tab. The filters “areatype” and “area” will appear on all tabs. These filters will allow you to select the geographic area(s) you’d like to view and/or compare. First, select your areatype (statewide, county, or WDA). The area drop-down box will then update to include only the areas for the areatype you selected.
You will also see additional filters that will vary depending on what tab you are viewing. The “ad type” drop-down box refers to the distinction between “total ads” present during the reference period or “new ads” posted during the reference period. The “level” drop-down refers to the “digit level” (i.e. 2-digit, 4-digit) of the hierarchical North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes and Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes. Below that you will also see a “description” drop down that will display more detailed information depending on what category you’ve selected. Examples of the description information include titles for industries, occupations, skills, and certifications. Definitions for the various types of skills and certifications can be found on the “definitions” tab.
