Matching Skills and Jobs
Matching Skills and Jobs provides a series of indicators on skills and labour market mismatches. Skills related indicators allow you to gauge the extent of under-utilisation of skills, under-skilling or skills obsolescence among employees in the EU. For example the under-utilization of skills means that employees report that they have higher skills that required to perform their current job. Other indicators refer to labour market mismatches such as the long-term unemployment rate or number of young people not in employment, education or training.
Weak employment demand in Europe is increasing competition for jobs and people are more willing to accept jobs which do not match their level of qualification. Matching Skills and Jobs aims to highlight and capture such mismatches in the European labour market.
