Computer based estimation of employment trends in economic sectors in Germany

For each year of the project duration, i.e. from 2010 until 2014, GWS provides the German Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit) with an estimation of the German labour market for the current year as well as the coming year. By using the sectorally deeply disaggregated macroeconomic model INFORGE, GWS makes a projection on the employment development in each of the 59 economic sectors according to the WZ structure (German version of NACE). The projections will take into account possible structural changes as well as cyclical trends of the economy.
