Skills Panorama brings insights on jobs and skills requested in online job advertisements. Based on an ongoing Cedefop project, these insights now cover 28 European countries. More than 67 million of online job ads were collected and analysed, covering period of July 2018 till December 2019. The analysis provides information on most required occupations and skills across European countries and regions based on established international classifications: ISCO-08 for occupations, NUTS-2 for regions, ESCO for skills and NACE rev. 2 for sectors.

Cautionary notice: Cedefop has developed this analysis using a robust methodology and under substantial quality control mechanisms. However, online job ads are not a comprehensive source of skills and job demand and many factors influence its completeness and coverage. More analysis and testing will be done in the near future to provide sound evidence for informing policy developments. The fully-fledged system with expanded functions will be released by end of 2020.
