Job Creation and Local Economic Development

image of Job Creation and Local Economic Development

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.

United Kingdom

shows where conditions are ripe for quality job creation due to high skills supply and high skills demand in the sub-regions of the United Kingdom in 2011.Northern Ireland could not be included in the skills analysis of the United Kingdom due to differences in data collection methods. Due to lack of data Eilean Siar, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands are not included in the skills analysis. Much of the South was in “high skills equilibrium”, where a high supply of skills (percentage of people with post-secondary education) is matched by high skills demand (percentage of medium and high skills occupations and GVA per worker). In contrast, areas of South West Scotland, Northern England, the Midlands, and Wales were in “low skills equilibrium”, where a low supply of skills is matched by low demand. Western Scotland was in skills surplus, where the skills supply exceeds demand.
