    When comparing these stats to previous years, they aren't quite as alarming.

    For one thing, quitting data has only been collected for a little over 20 years. In general, when the U.S. economy is strong, many new jobs and opportunities are created. As a result, more people quit their jobs in search of something better. It’s very likely that the quit rate was higher in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
