Europäische Betriebsbefragungen über offene Stellen


"Data on open job vacancies are highly relevant for labour market research. Recently they have been published by the European Commission (EUROSTAT) for most European countries. The data are usually collected by business surveys. A closer look at them shows that at the present 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 methods are very different; in some cases the data quality must be doubted. One reason lies in the tremendous costs of these surveys. Another one is the lack of quality measurement at national level. This paper shows the progress done with national job vacancy statistics in Europe and explains the weaknesses of the available data material on the basis of examples."
