Job Vacancies

The number of job vacancies grew by 8.1 percent from one year ago, to 96,000 during fourth quarter 2015. Statewide, the greatest number of vacancies were in the Health Care & Social Assistance industry, followed by Accommodation & Food Service, Retail Trade, and Manufacturing. The statewide median wage offer was $13.54 per hour.

About 56,000 or 58.3 percent of job vacancies were located in the Twin Cities seven-county area, while the remaining 40,000 vacancies were located in Greater Minnesota.

Statewide, there was a one-to-one ratio between job seekers and job vacancies, the lowest ratio on record during a fourth quarter. This indicates that the labor market continues to tightened as baby boomers retire and the number of jobs continues to grow.
