The Research & Planning (R&P) section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services publishes turnover data for Wyoming on a quarterly basis, both in Wyoming Labor Force Trends and online at http://doe.state.wy.us/LMI/turnover.htm. Turnover data at the industry level are available from second quarter 1992 (1992Q2) to fourth quarter 2014 (2014Q4) and are updated quarterly.
R&P also has the capability to produce turnover data at the county level. This is illustrated in the table showing turnover by industry for Natrona County during 2014Q4.
There are four types of worker interactions that factor into turnover: hires (H), exits (E), both (B), and continuous employment (C). Both refers to workers who were hired and then separated from an employer in the same quarter. Continuous employment refers to individuals who were attached to an employer for at least three consecutive quarters. The turnover rate is calculated by adding the number of hires, exits, and both, and dividing them by the total number of transactions ([H+E+B]/Total).
Turnover rates vary by industry and county. This can be seen by comparing the turnover tables for Natrona County and Wyoming. In the construction inudstry, for example, the statewide turnover rate for 2014Q4 was 39.7%. In Natrona County, the turnover rate for the construction industry was slightly lower, at 33.5%.
R&P has the capability to produce tables of county-level turnover data based on customer demand. For some counties, some industry-level data may be non-discloseable due to a very small number of transactions.
