Though down 25% from last week, the week ending March 12th was the 8th highest new ad count during the pandemic period and 30% above a year ago. A large share of that over the week decline is the result of shifts within Health Care & Social Assistance, which accounted for over 50% of the total drop. That industry shift was heavily influenced by a one-week blip in new ads at Hartford Healthcare, which rose to almost 2,000 during the week ending March 5th or more than 34% of total new ads increase that week.

Other industries with large shares of the total decline include Finance & Insurance and Retail trade, respectively with 7% and 6% of the over the week decline.

During the week ending February 12th, 2022, there were 7,315 new postings, down -635 ads over the week. Despite this overall decline, a majority of industries added jobs over the week, the largest being Accommodation & Food Services (+168 new ads), Pro., Sci., & Tech. Services (+115 new ads), and Finance & Insurance (+115 new ads). These gains were tempered by a large -1,355 over the week decline in Health Care & Social Assistance, which resulted in the net decline across all industries. There is some indication that this Health Care drop may be overstated as the result of a job ad deduplication issue within the HWOL series and not due to a large real drop in postings. Employers with the largest new ad increase and decrease over the week include Boston Market (+89 new ads) and Hartford Healthcare (-507 new ads). The first two weeks of February have averaged higher than the monthly averages for the previous two months, which includes the December-January Omicron covid case wave.
