The Conference Board's Help-Wanted Advertising Index, which tracks job offerings in 51 major newspapers across America, declined two points in January. The index now stands at 32. It was 38 one year ago.

In January, there were 3,141,800 online advertised vacancies, a decline of 6 percent from December, according to The Conference Board. In January there were 2.06 advertised vacancies online for every 100 persons in the national labor force, down slightly from 2.19 the month before, but up from 1.89 a year ago.

"The labor market was strong in the final months of 2006," says Ken Goldstein, labor economist at The Conference Board. "The forward indicators of labor market activity suggest moderate economic growth will continue to deliver new jobs into the late winter and early spring months."
