Extension of the model calculations on the future labour demand by occupation and qualification until 2030
The aim of the project was to extend the labour market of the structural input-output model IAB/INFORGE with two further dimensions: occupation and qualification. Future labour demand (until 2030) was not only identified by 63 industrial sectors, but also by 54 occupational fields and formal qualification levels. The definition of occupation follows the approach by the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Trianing (BIBB). Qualification levels were classified in accordance to ISCED definition of the UN. The model extension allowed for the first time the comparison of labour demand and labour supply on the level of occupational fields. Occupation-specific scarcities on the labour market were possible to be identified.
