Skilled Labor Analysis

What is a Skilled Labor Analysis?

A Skilled Labor Analysis identifies how supply and demand on the labor market is predicted to develop, categorized according to years, professions, qualifications, sectors, and regions. It provides an understanding for when, and in which areas, shortages of skilled workers are anticipated to occur. WifOR also maps recruitment scenarios so that companies and sectors can specifically counteract these identified shortages.

What is the methodology behind a Skilled Labor Analysis?

For a Skilled Labour Analysis, WifOR applies a macroeconomic labor market model that depicts the interactions of actors on the labor market using a range of variables. Official statistics, including those provided by the Federal Employment Agency and Eurostat, serve as the basis for our data.

The analysis provides data and insights on developments on the labor market up to 2040 – adjusted to occupations and sectors. It identifies at an early stage which bottlenecks are expected in certain occupations, qualifications or regions. The analysis also offers concrete indications of where there are clusters of skills for individual occupations. The results of the analysis can be used by governments, employers, employees, and associations.
