Funded by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and under subcontract to Office Remedies, Inc. (ORI), IMPAQ International was contracted to help BLS develop a list of new data elements that could be added to the JOLTS (Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey) instrument. The work consisted of developing and testing a questionnaire to assess the availability, accuracy, and timeliness of the new data elements; administering the questionnaire to 30 business establishments identified by BLS; analyzing the data, and developing a report with recommended changes to the survey instrument.
