A job vacancy is defined as a newly created, unoccupied, or about to become vacant, post. The job vacancy rate (JVR) measures the proportion of total posts that are vacant expressed as a percentage as follows: JVR = number of job vacancies * 100 / (number of occupied posts + number of job vacancies). Data are non-seasonally adjusted except for Czech Republic and UK. Job vacancy rates for DK, FR, IT and MT are probably under-estimated due to a partial coverage of the respective economies.
