ASA Staffing Index Monthly Report, September 2014
ASA Staffing Index Continues to Climb
Staffing employment for the week of Sept. 8–14 increased to 102.84, according to the ASA Staffing Index—the highest index value this year. Temporary and contract staffing employment increased 1.68% from the prior week, and 3.25% compared with the same week last year. That same week also will be used in the September monthly employment situation report that will be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Oct. 3.
The ASA Staffing Index is reported nine days after each workweek, making it a near real-time measure of staffing employment trends. ASA research shows that staffing employment is a coincident economic indicator.
