Kelly Education commissioned an online statewide survey of 2,003 business leaders throughout the United States. In order to qualify for participation in the survey, participants must hold job titles such as senior manager, director, vice president, managing director, C-Suite, or president/owner. The margin of error for the overall sample is +/- 2 percentage points with a confidence interval of 95 percent.
In addition to the overall sample of 2,003 business leaders, 752 business leaders were oversampled in Pennsylvania (N=250), Minnesota (N=251) and Florida (N=251).
The margin of error in each oversampled state is +/- 6 percentage points with a confidence interval of 95 percent.
Talent shortage projections were estimated by applying the 5-year average annual growth (2017-2022 YTD) in openings and hires for the state and local education and education service industries out to 2025. The difference between average projected monthly openings and hires is the anticipated talent shortfall.
