Pace/SkillPROOF IT Index
The Pace/SkillPROOF IT Index (PSII) is a composite index that provides a snapshot of the IT job markets in New York (Manhattan) and Westchester Counties in separate reports. The indexes are based on 11 standard IT job categories defined by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Weightings of the relative importance of the categories prevent a surge in any one category from having a disproportionate, and hence, misleading influence on the Index's overall snapshot of the market. The Index is helpful as a planning tool to job seekers and for policy makers in corporations, government and education because it indicates the needs for certain skills and professional education.
The index is updated quarterly and made available by the 15th of the month following the end of each business quarter.
The PSII is produced under the auspices of the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems led by Interim Dean Constance A. Knapp, PhD. It was initiated by Dean Emeritus Susan M. Merritt, PhD, and developed and calculated by Farrokh Hormozi, PhD, professor of economics and public administration in Pace University's Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, and is based on labor market data provided by Henning Seip of SkillPROOF, Inc.
