ASA Staffing Index Continues to Reach Record Highs in February


ASA Staffing Index Monthly Report, February 2015

ASA Staffing Index Remains Strong

The ASA Staffing Index for the week of Feb. 9–15 was 95.82—a record high for the seventh week of the year. Temporary and contract staffing employment decreased 0.42% from the prior week, with continued impact from inclement weather on the East Coast. Staffing employment was 5.59% higher than the same week last year. This week, containing the 12th, will be used in the February monthly employment situation report that will be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 6.

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 has historically been a coincident economic indicator.
