Applicants per Requisition - Segments

The Applicants per Requisition segments page displays three different charts:

  • Segment Data
  • Historical Segment Data
  • Medians of Portals

In addition to the charts described on this page, each metric's Segments page allows you to view and configure verticals and view metric details. See Benchmark Segments Overview.

To access the Applicants per Requisition segments page, go to Admin > Tools > Benchmark and click the Applicants per Requisition report widget.

Segment Data

The Segment Data chart displays the median number of applicants per requisition, by selected source type. The My Company line displays where your organization stands amongst its peers. Applicants per requisition across all portals are included in the segment.

To select a source type, click the Type drop-down menu below the Segment Data chart and choose a source from the list. The chart data will refresh accordingly.

Historical Segment Data

The Historical Segment Data bar chart displays the percentage of applicants per requisition, by segment, for the selected source type, by the selected time interval. This is the same data displayed in the Segment Data chart above, except the Historical Segment Data chart shows how the data across segments has changed over time.

To change the time interval for the chart, click the By: drop-down menu and choose from the following time intervals:

  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year

After selecting a new time interval, the chart data will refresh accordingly.

Medians of Portals

The Medians of Portals box provides helpful data when there are portals in the Segment Data chart that might be skewing the data. For example, if there is a segment with five organizations, and four out of the five organizations have averages of five applicants per requisition, and one of the five organizations has many more requisitions than the other organizations and also has an average of 50 applicants per requisition, the organization with 50 applicants may skew the data. To avoid potentially skewed data, the Medians of Portals chart uses the median applicants per requisition of each portal rather than the applicants per requisition of all requisitions in the entire segment. By using the Medians of Portals chart, you can avoid potential potentially skewed data by viewing the median of medians.
