The study of the complex relationship between job openings and unemployment is of particular interest to researchers. While these two measures are expected to move in opposite directions over the course of the business cycle, their relative levels and movements depend on the PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 efficiency of the labor market in matching workers and jobs. Along with the job openings rate, trends in hires and separations may broadly identify which aggregate industries face the tightest labor markets. Quits rates, the number of persons who quit during an entire month as a percentage of total employment, may provide clues about workers’ views of the labor market or their success in finding better jobs. In addition, businesses will be able to compare their own turnover rates to the national, regional, and major industry division rates. The BLS uses the JOLTS form to gather information on employment, job openings, hires, and total separations from business establishments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) collects data on 
job vacancies, labor hires, and labor separations. As the monthly JOLTS 
time series grow longer, their value in assessing the business cycle, 
the difficulty that employers have in hiring workers, and the extent of 
the mismatch between the unused supply of available workers and the 
unmet demand for labor by employers will increase. The study of the 
complex relationship between job openings and unemployment is of 
particular interest to researchers. While these two measures are 
expected to move in opposite directions over the course of the business 
cycle, their relative levels and movements depend on the efficiency of 
the labor market in matching workers and jobs.
    Along with the job openings rate, trends in hires and separations 
may broadly identify which aggregate industries face the tightest labor 
markets. Quits rates, the number of persons who quit during an entire 
month as a percentage of total employment, may provide clues about 
workers' views of the labor market or their success in finding better 
jobs. In addition, businesses will be able to compare their own 
turnover rates to the national, regional, and major industry division 
rates.
    The BLS uses the JOLTS form to gather information on employment, 
job openings, hires, and total separations from business 
establishments. The information is collected once a month at the BLS 
Data Collection Center (DCC) in Atlanta, Georgia. The information is 
collected using Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), Web, 
email, and FAX. An establishment is in the sample for 24 consecutive 
months.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
JOLTS. The BLS is requesting an extension to the existing clearance for 
the JOLTS. There are no major changes being made to the forms, 
procedures, data collection methodology, or other aspects of the 
survey.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in 
comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the

[[Page 78111]]

functions of the agency, including whether the information will have 
practical utility.
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used.
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected.
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.
