It is a key index of the "Employment Referrals for General Workers" compiled by the Public Employment Security Office on the state of job openings, applicants, and employment.
The active job openings-to-applicants ratio is defined as monthly active job openings subtracted by monthly active job applicants.
In addition, the new job openings-to-applicants ratio, which is new job openings divided by new job applicants, tends to fluctuate preceding movements in the active job openings-to-applicants ratio.
The rise in the active job openings-to-applicants ratio in recent years is the result of a combination of decreases in monthly active job applications and increases in monthly active job openings. Monthly active job applicants most recently peaked in 2009 at an average of 2.76 million people, and has since continued to drop to an average of 1.86 million people in 2016.
On the other hand, administrative occupation is at 0.48 times, which means job openings are less than half the number of job applicants.
