ASA Staffing Index Monthly Report, June 2017

Staffing employment for the week of June 12–18 edged up to 96.30, according to the ASA Staffing Index, reaching the highest value for the same week since 2007. Temporary and contract staffing employment was 0.21% higher than the prior week. Some respondents reported that seasonal business fluctuations and school breaks had slowed the pace of employment growth from the prior week. Staffing employment was 2.20% higher than the same week last year.

This week, containing the 12th, will be used in the June monthly employment situation report that will be issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on July 7.

Over the past month, the ASA Staffing Index progressed to an average of 95.43, the strongest reading of the four-week moving average so far this year. Year-to-year, the four-week average grew 1.81%.

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.
