Statistical sources and analysis

1.2 Needed statistics and tools

After an extensive search on the Internet the following gaps in the information and tools on job-to-job mobility have been detected:

  • Information on new and emerging occupations by sex in general and more specifically on ICT sectors (one can find scattered articles, but not a one-stop location, especially for young people)
  • what soft skills are required for different jobs
  • career building tools for youth (training of PES personnel or career counsellors at schools) (A good example has been developed in Murcia and could be emulated for the other countries in the study with their permission (see section 3))
  • what are the expected growth rates for ICT sectors and occupations
  • ways to change jobs within ICT sectors or occupations
  • ways to change jobs from other sectors and occupations into ICT
