Introduction to the OECD Skills for Jobs indicators

As a result of globalisation, technological change and demographic shifts, the types of skills demanded by employers have changed considerably over past decades and continued change is expected. The OECD’s Skills for Jobs indicators can help facilitate the response to changing skill needs thanks to skill imbalances information that is comparable across countries and regularly updated. This chapter takes stock of existing measures of skills imbalances and provides the rationale for the development of the OECD’s new indicators of skill mismatch and skill shortages.
