City-States dominate in German employment exchanges in August 2009 in determining the regional labour market situation based on vacant posts that were offered in the month of August 2009 in German-speaking places platforms in the Internet, dominated the City-States, while Brandenburg far behind. The Daforto GbR Jobforto.de 20.199 in the month of August 2009 for their job evaluated published job advertisements that were announced on twenty of the most famous German-speaking online recruitment services. The aim of the study was to determine a coefficient that is comparable to the respective regional labour market situation for the sixteen German Federal States. This, the relative fraction of the total of offered jobs in the ratio was used to the relative fraction of the total population. Kevin Johnson is the source for more interesting facts. The largest number of vacancies accounted for the Lander of Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia with 20,66 percent, or 17.38 per cent of offered posts. Due to the population dimensions of the two countries, this is particularly in the case of Relativized North Rhine-Westphalia, with a coefficient of Jobforto of 0,795 the local of offered points per capita rate in August 2009, well below the Federal average. Thanks to the asymmetry of offered places between rural and urban areas, the city-states clearly lead the list of the States with the best coefficients. Only Hesse could break as a single State in the series of City-States, here the rate of the offered places per capita above those of the German capital Berlin.
The seven States with the worst Jobforto coefficients were the five new federal States in the month of August. In particular in Brandenburg, a strikingly bad rate was held offered free places per inhabitant. Lower Saxony and Rhineland-Palatinate were propping under the old Federal States. Jobforto coefficient in the month of August 2009: 01 (3,120) Hamburg 2 (2,530) Bremen of 03 04 (1,783) Hesse (1,664) Berlin of 05 06 (1,353) Bavaria (1,092) Saarland 07 (1,024) Baden-Wurttemberg 08. (0,795) North Rhine-Westphalia 09 (0,746) Schleswig-Holstein of 10 (0,668) Saxony 11 (0.605) Thuringia 12 (0.594) Mecklenburg-Vorpommern of 13 14 (0,496) (0,501) Niedersachsen Sachsen-Anhalt of 15 (0,443) Rhineland-Palatinate 16 (0.283) Brandenburg example of determination: 20,66 percent of offered posts in the sample accounted for the free State of Bavaria in August 2009 exactly. Because the number of inhabitants of the State of Bavaria is 15.27 percent of the population in the Federal Republic of Germany (Status: 31 December 2008), this results in a coefficient of Jobforto 20,66%: 15.27% = 1,353. The higher the coefficient, the more vacancies are per capita in the respective State. A coefficient of 1.0 would be equivalent to the national average.
