Update of the regional employment projection for the Saarland

The GWS has generated a long-term projection of employment for the Saarland, one of the 16 German Federal States, depicting the development of total employment and in individual sectors up to the year 2030. The study accommodates for the increasing disparities among labour market regions and the coherent growing relevance of regionalised projections. The results help to early detect problematic situations in different regions, enabling regional players to act in time and to initiate measures to avoid scarcities or other problems in time.
