Monthly Hourly Employment Report

Reported monthly, the Monthly Hourly Employment Report shows real-time hourly workforce employment activity among states with the highest density of hourly employees; —often before jobs reports and other traditional lagging indicators of economic activity. 

Looking at operational changes in terms of the number of hours worked, provides additional clarity given that it is inclusive of the immediate impacts of both unemployment and underemployment being felt across each geography.

These results are sourced from hourly shifts data collected by When I Work on millions of hourly employees totaling hundreds of millions of hours worked. These data account for year-over-year geographical and economic trends in the represented geographies using publicly available economic data at the state and federal levels.
