More Hawaiçi unemployed than job ads in November

Advertiser Staff

There were more than three times more unemployed people in the state than online advertisement for job vacancies in November, according to a new report.
The Conference Board’s latest online job data report shows Hawaiçi’s ratio of unemployed to ads was 3.27 during the month.

That was better than the national average of 4.54 unemployed people for every online help wanted ad during the month and Hawaiçi ranked 17th best among states.
The report from the Conference Board also reflects higher unemployment on the Neighbor Islands in that Honolulu’s supply-to-demand rate is much lower than the overall statewide ratio.
The report said Honolulu had 2.18 unemployed folks for ever advertisement. That was sixth-best among 52 metropolitan areas studied.
