Econintersect:  A vary useful set of employment indexes complied and issued to monsterlogonomorethe public for the past eight years is being terminated.  Monster Worldwide (NYSE:MWW), an internet based employment agency, has issued a statement that says that it has decided that an index based in inline job opening listings is  "no longer an accurate measure of our business, nor the market at large."

Recently Econintersect started reporting the Monster Employment Index (MEI) data for the U.S. and the European region.

Here is the complete press release from Monster Worldwide, Inc.:

New York, January 4, 2013

We've released the Monster Employment Index (MEI) for over eight years and we're increasingly feeling that it cannot give a complete enough picture of the landscape in all the countries we operate in. As Monster has grown, so too has our media agnostic approach to sourcing and recruiting. An index which measures only online job posting activity is no longer an accurate measure of our business, nor the market at large. We've therefore made the decision to focus on releasing different types of surveys and research data on a broader range of topics we believe are relevant to both seekers and employers. We greatly value the interest you've shown in Monster and the MEI and we look forward to releasing more data and research information through media and on our website in future.
