About the Index
The Index provides a way to measure and compare trends in the wine job market. March 2007 is set with a base index of 100. The following months’ indexes reflect percentage changes since that base index, providing a quick way to gauge rises and drops in job postings. Derived from the leading online wine job board, these changes can be interpreted as industry-wide trends. In 2008, the Index accurately predicted a severe drop in wine-related jobs prior to the economic recession.
