American Staffing Association (03/25/14)
Staffing employment for the week of March 10–16 was up 3.11% compared with the same week last year, according to the ASA Staffing Index, which rose to 94. That week is the same one used in the March monthly employment situation report that will be issued April 4 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The ASA Staffing Index is reported nine days after each workweek, making it a near real-time measure of staffing employment trends. ASA research shows that staffing employment is a coincident economic indicator.
