Get the Full Picture

With Real-Time and Historical Data

 

With our unique aggregated jobs data, we are able to see trends as they happen in real time. Our data sets are an amalgamation of both historical and real-time data points—which is ideal for predictive purposes. We have a dedicated team of developers whose primary responsibility is to extract, validate, and de-duplicate approximately 7 to 10 million advertised jobs daily from openings posted across the Internet from a wide variety of sources, including public and private job boards, government and medical entities, and a variety of other websites. This data is checked daily to ensure the job is still open and active—meaning our data is the most up-to-date it can possibly be.

 

Our company’s initial focus used geography to map out the location and population of jobs in certain areas, bringing a new concept to the labor market industry. Therein lies the crux of our moniker, ‘Geographic Solutions’.

Historical data, dating back nearly 30 years, is pulled from many traditional labor market sources.

 

  • Census American Community Survey
  • IPEDS post-secondary educational statistics
  • Bureau of Labor Statistics labor market information
  • Census labor market information
  • Bureau of Economic Analysis labor market information
  • Scholarship provider lists for post-secondary education
  • Cost of Living data for areas across the US

 

This jobs data is what we continuously push to our client sites to allow users to find employment and for staff to provide outreach. Geographic Solutions also serves as a partner to states and compliance vendors in making sure their Mandatory Job Listings are directly listed with the state job board, taking the highest of measures in both timeliness and accuracy in order to comply with OFCCP and EEOC requirements.

 

Answer Industry Needs

With Well-Informed Statistics

 

Our Data Services Team assigns standardized taxonomy codes for occupation (O*NET), industry of employer (NAIC), geography (FIPS), education level, and experience. We can also crosswalk between the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) codes and the standard federal taxonomy codes so curriculum development can be informed by the current and predicted labor market trends in a given geographic area. Aligning CIP codes and the skillsets required in those CIP codes becomes easier. Our data is standardized to the Federal database system, and is provided in a format that eases WID reporting. Our data can be utilized by many different groups for a myriad of reasons:

What Makes Our Data

Different and Essential

 

Our unique data is both stable and consistent to allow for use over time. The Supply-and-Demand data we gather enables us to analyze the qualifications and requirements within a job posting, and parse out the requirements employers are seeking by area, occupation, and wages. The data also looks at the education and experience requirements.

 

This also allows us to compare current unemployment rates with job counts. All of our job-to-candidate tables are real-time as of the day prior. We are able to view the number of candidates per job opening, as well as number of qualified candidates for specific occupations, and the number of job openings available for that occupation.

Know Where to Look Ahead

With Informed Forecasts

 

We are able to provide statistical aggregations of data to allow for tracking growth in occupations, industries, education, and experience across time. Our in-house data services team and resident economist make accurate forecasts of unemployment numbers using our labor market information, and have more accurately predicted trends than other major forecasting models.

 

This real-time and historical look at labor market trends is the foundation upon which economic development planning is laid. With the data we are able to provide local and state governments can view the current labor pool to attract specific industries and/or employers, researchers are able to analyze and predict trends, employers can determine the location of their best labor pool, and colleges and universities are able to better plan course curriculum and degree programs in response to the needs of area employers.
