Job seekers vs. jobs

There is always another way of looking at unemployment. The New York Times has published a comparison of the number of job seekers vs. the number of open jobs. Here

The conference board publishes are more interesting break down of the online help wanted advertising by job category. Here. And the press release is here.

The conference board is a private institution and does not allow the free re-use of it's data.
