The Online Job Openings Report (OJOR) is the earliest monthly indicator of North Dakota’s labor market activity and provides a timely overview of the current supply/demand dynamic. The OJOR is generally published the first working Wednesday of the month following the reference month (i.e. January data published the first working Wednesday in February), though exceptions may occur. March 2017 is the most recent report available. The report involves the monthly collection, processing, and dissemination of online job openings posted by employers and online resumé activities of job seekers. Both job openings and active resumés are published for major occupational groups at statewide and regional levels. Data for counties are only available at a total aggregate level. Supply/demand rate calculations are also published including unemployed persons per job opening and active resumés per job opening.
Below are links to the latest monthly statewide report and a spreadsheet containing the job openings dataset back to June 2008. Additionally, eight regional labor market reports are available. While the regional reports are not as comprehensive as the statewide report, they do provide some local detail and comparisons not otherwise available.
