Started Apr 03, 2024 02:00PM UTC

Amid higher interest rates, job openings in the US have fallen in in the past year but remained at historically elevated levels as of February 2024 (AP). The question will be suspended on 30 June 2024 and the outcome determined using BLS data as first reported by the Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) database for June 2024, expected in July 2024 (FRED, BLS - JOLTS Release Schedule). As of the launch of this question, the total number of job openings reported for June 2023 was 9,125 (in thousands), or 9.125 million.
