This publication highlights new evidence on policies to support job creation, bringing together the latest research on labour market, entrepreneurship and local economic development policy to help governments support job creation in the recovery. It  also includes  a set of country pages featuring, among other things, new data on skills supply and demand at the level of smaller OECD regions (TL3).

This publication is the first in a series to take this integrative approach, and it is designed to be user friendly and accessible to all government officials, academics, practitioners and civil society with an interest in local economic development and job creation.

Reader's guide

Job Creation and Local Economic Development 2014 is the first edition of the OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme’s biennial publication. This publication highlights new evidence on policies to support local job creation across LEED’s areas of work, including labour market, entrepreneurship, and local economic development policy. It draws from LEED research to identify common issues that local areas face, general lessons and promising approaches, and examples of programmes and policies that are emblematic of strong local responses. As it cuts across the various output areas of the LEED Programme, it is intended to complement and add value to LEED’s more specific and in-depth publications.
