Abstract

Based on the counting of Help-wanted advertisements in print newspapers, we present national vacancy indexes and vacancy rates for Colombia. These series will allow tackling a myriad of questions related to the functioning of the labor markets in emerging economies, where such datasets were not available.

Keywords: Vacancies, Help-wanted index, unemployment, Beveridge curve, labor market, Colombia

JEL Classification: E24, E32, J63, J64
