European job vacancy surveys



"Data on open job vacancies are highly relevant for labour market research. Since recently they have been published by the European Commission/EUROSTAT for some European countries. Usually data are collected by business surveys. A closer look at them shows, that an international comparison of vacancy data or even their interpretation with regard to national labour market policies does not stand on a reliable base. The statistical delimitations and used methods are very different; in some cases the data quality must be doubted. One reason lies in the tremendous costs of these surveys. Another reason lies in the obvious undervaluation of reliable and comparable vacancy data, not only for research but especially for labour market policy. This paper shows the progress done with national job vacancy surveys in Europe and explains the weaknesses of the available data material on the base of examples."
