Job vacancies, employment and the economic cycle


This publication contains the reports of two working group sessions on the methodology of statistics about vacant jobs. The first working group session was carried out jointly by Eurostat and the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) and took place on 11 and 12 December 2008 in Nuremberg. The second session was on 18 and 19 November 2009 in Neuchâtel together with Eurostat and the Federal Statistical Office of Switzerland. Various aspects such as the following were discussed: differing approaches to data collection (specially designed survey; collection coupled with another survey; using administrative sources) methods of weighting and data estimation (grossing up of figures); methods of error measurement and experience gained in introducing new national data collections relating to vacant jobs, especially in collecting data for particular economic branches and for changes in classification.
