NHQI: New Hires Quality Index

The Upjohn Institute New Hires Quality Index (NHQI) tracks the earnings power of newly hired workers. By matching the occupations of newly hired workers to wages by occupation, the NHQI provides updates each month on the earnings power of new hires in the United States, in the aggregate and for different groups based on sex, age, education, and other characteristics. Current and past press releases, as well as a technical paper describing the creation of the NHQI, can be found below.
