Description

Education and Health Care Services is one of the fastest growing employment sectors in the US. In this study we examine the relationship between it and nine S&P 500 sector ETF's plus SPY, a proxy for the S&P 500 Index. We test the hypothesis that Education and Healthcare employment growth co-varies directly with SPY and the nine sector ETF's. The period of analysis is 2009-2016 with monthly data used to construct the regression equations.
