Abstract

Despite their obvious importance for employment determination and the operation of labour markets, little is known about the distribution, nature or determinants of job vacancies. This paper describes and analyses the results of a large-scale establishment-level survey for England conducted in Spring 2001. It documents the distribution of unfilled jobs and investigates the factors which influence firms' recruitment practices and difficulties in a period of strong labour demand. While there is considerable heterogeneity in the stock of vacancies, it is possible to identify a downward sloping UV relationship between vacancies and the local unemployment rate.
