We are not sure if these have been around for some time, have been created for the current situation, or are just finding our eyes….
But we like them…
First it was the TSA Throughput numbers, which we find extremely interesting in following and tracking air passenger travel, here is our latest post.
Then we stumbled upon the Kastle, back to office working tracker, here, which of all things, is a security firm at its roots, but has created a fascinating graph of office occupancy in the largest 10 cities….
Meet our latest find…
Indeed Job Posting Indexes
In true nerd like fashion, we have reviewed, in Pavlov’s dog fashion (major drooling) all 118, yep … one hundred and eighteen different indexes from Indeed.
This data comes from Indeed’s two research sites https://www.hiringlab.org/ and the raw data site https://github.com/hiring-lab/data , all of this is put together in our favorite St Louis Federal Reserve FRED website.
Here is the link to the FRED website and all 118 Indeed indexes. Multiple Countries and major cities and states included….
These are job postings, created by Indeed and in terrific format.
We find it very interesting the variances by country. Germany is the most shallow of the drop-off in job postings … with the UK oddly being the deepest, and of note, Australia suddenly having an increase to take the lead as of late in the closest to be back to normal.
Indeed Texas Indexes
Here is a more specific regional job postings tracking of the state of Texas and cities, Austin, Dallas Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio.
San Antonio, the clear winner, with postings only down 7.9% from early year, our guess was Austin due to it’s high tech influence (wrong!) and the loser so far … Houston, lagging down almost 20% which makes sense due to Oil Dependency.
We will add this to our following and update posts and look forward to researching other areas of the Country/World as well as watching these continue!
Have a Great “Indeed Job Postings World Review” Day!
