The fill rate is a ratio of hires during the month to job openings at the end of the prior month. A fill rate greater than 1.0 means businesses hired more employees during the month than they had jobs open at the end of the prior month. A ratio less than 1.0 means fewer hires during the month than open jobs at the end of the prior month. There were 6.7 million hires in February 2022, compared with 11.3 million job openings in January 2022. That means 60 percent of job openings were filled during February, or a fill rate of 0.6. February 2022 was the seventh consecutive month in which the fill rate was 0.6.
