More jobs than workers in Dakotas, Nebraska
By Northern Plains News
More jobs are advertised online in South Dakota, North Dakota and Nebraska than there are unemployed workers, according to a new study.
The Conference Board released its Help Wanted Online study Wednesday.
According to data from October, the latest available, the number of advertised vacancies exceeded the number of unemployed only in North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska, with supply/demand rates of 0.53, 0.96 and 0.98, respectively, meaning there was fewer than one unemployed worker for each online advertised vacancy.
The state with the highest supply/demand rate was Mississippi (4.40), where there were more than four unemployed workers for each online advertised vacancy.
The Conference Board is an international independent business membership and research association.
