What makes this data set different from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data?
Burning Glass Technologies data provides a real-time view of the senior housing labor market. After analysis of more than 40,000 sources, the company’s software gathers details about specific job categories, as well as how those categories differ from market to market. Since Burning Glass updates this data daily, this gives users a near-instant snapshot of the market. Only freshly posted jobs, no older than a month, are included in the analysis.
The BLS’s most frequent report is released monthly and based on active, rather than current, job postings. Additionally, the defined job categories are much broader, so there’s also a lack of specificity and granularity. Still, given the BLS’s wealth of historic data, the BLS data is useful for analyzing a macro-level view of the labor market and reviewing historical trends.
What's included in this data set?
- Wage data (hourly/annual) by position
- Salary percentile by position
- Education requirements by position
