New Labor Market Indicators Issue 2

January 4, 2006

This report analyzes the results of new indicators from our previous indicator report, for the early 2000s.

Our previous Labor Market Indicators report (Issue #1) introduced two new indicators designed to supplement two of the government’s key labor market indicators, the unemployment rate and the employment rate. These new indicators are intended to add a job quality dimension to better measure the nation’s labor market performance. This report analyzes the results of these indicators for the early 2000s.
