What do people do all day
It’s probably not the best time to be looking at US jobs data, given how much everything has changed on an historic scale in the last few weeks. But in the spirit of a) interesting dataviz and b) some context, Beehive’s analysis of 20 years of stats and how the workplace is changing is fascinating. The key insight is just how many new jobs have been created in a short space of time around health care at home – a seeming collaboration with the retirement age of the baby boomer generation.
How this particular set of insights compares to the last few weeks of data will be very interesting – the latest reports put healthcare services as the second highest hit afterthe leisure industry, and we assume that’s not hospital staff.
