Jobs in 2020. We began the year on a high, with nearly 3 million active job listings in the U.S. and unemployment at an all time low. But the cliff was approaching more rapidly than we could have imagined–just a few months later the country was all but shut down and active job listings dropped to less than 2 million.
Since that time we’ve seen huge strides toward recovery made in the summer and fall, and some leveling off of that upward trajectory late in the year.
In this 2020 Jobs Report, we provide a look at the highs and lows of 2020 with an in-depth look at the labor market over the entire year. We track COVID’s impacts at the global, country, state and metropolitan statistical area level. And we reveal how occupations and industries have shifted in response to the pandemic. We also look back to see which sector S&P 500® LinkUp Jobs Indices came out on top, and let you know which tickers we're watching.
