The purpose of the index is to provide timely information on the current state of labor demand. The OVI index is created by simply counting the number of unique new ads whose application deadlines end in the month for which the index is calculated. Since ads published through only one portal are taken, the number of ads is expressed as an index (base year is 2015).The index is interpreted as meaning that values ​​greater than 100 represent an increase compared to 2015, and values ​​less than 100 decrease compared to the base year. The index was seasonally adjusted by the X-12-ARIMA method.center_img Sharelast_img
