Gathering data from various sources, we offer the most comprehensive landscape of skills and labour market data available today for Europe. We draw on reliable sources such as Eurostat, OECD or our own expert calculations validated by the research community. The availability of data, as displayed by indicators, may vary depending on the database source or on data collection practices at country level. The Skills Panorama team will ensure to offer you the latest available information.

Data is delivered to you through the ‘Explore’ tool using dashboards predefined by our experts. Dashboards can be further configured according to your own needs by using various filters and allows you to explore the variety of data and indicators in your own way. Data is also used in ‘Analytical Highlights’, our succinct reports that can support planners and decision-makers understand and analyse a range of skills and labour market issues. These are regularly updated to capture changes in the state of play of sectors, occupations and any other skill relevant development. Our data typically cover all Member States and refer to the period 2010 to 2025, depending on availability and characteristics of each source/database. In instances where micro-data have been processed, such is the case of the EU Labour Force Survey for example, there may be small variations from the published Eurostat data which are mainly due to different vintages of data used to process the information. However, all estimations presented are those of the Skills Panorama Team and not those of Eurostat or any of the national statistical authorities whose data have been used.

Sectoral data in the Skills Panorama comprises six broad sectors and 17 industries. The structure used to navigate through sectors is compatible with the latest revision of Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community (NACE rev. 2). Some categories are merged to provide reliable information on future trends.

Our occupational data comprises 10 major groups and 27 occupational groups. The structure used to navigate through occupations is based on the latest version of International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-08). Some categories were merged to provide reliable information on future trends.

Regarding data on level of education, we follow the aggregate International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) classification distinguishing individuals with low, medium, and high level of formal education.
