1 connecting you to the future Skills Supply forecast Working group I Frank Cörvers (ROA) and Hector Pollitt (CE) February 2008, Thessaloniki Skills for Europe’s Future Cedefop Skillsnet Agora conference

2 connecting you to the future February 2008, Thessaloniki Skills for Europe’s Future Cedefop Skillsnet Agora conference Labour supply forecast by age and gender – E3ME Labour supply forecast of population by qualification Feedback from individual country experts and Cedefop Labour supply forecast of graduates by qualification Final report Interim report

3 connecting you to the future Role of the E3ME model in the project To provide the link between economic development and overall labour supply This forms an input to modelling the supply of skills

4 connecting you to the future Description of E3ME Econometric model –covers EU27 + Norway and Switzerland –based on the system of national accounts –large sectoral disaggregation –long and short term specification For more details see

5 connecting you to the future Data Sources Eurostat National Accounts data OECD Structural Analysis (STAN) Eurostat Labour Force Survey Other –AMECO database –national statistical agencies Model parameters are estimated on time series covering – for New Members

6 connecting you to the future Model Enhancements Labour supply currently modelled for male and female population This will be further disaggregated into age groups E3ME’s equations will be modified to take into account factors relevant to particular age groups, such as pensions and training opportunities

7 connecting you to the future Forecasting Labour Supply Population projections to match Eurostat baseline Economic forecast to match EC publication Labour participation rates are modelled as a function of: –cyclical indicators (output) –average wage rates –unemployment rate –benefit rates –economic structure (services / manufacturing) Initial forecasts will be discussed with individual country experts before being finalised Two scenarios will be run to test key sensitivities

8 Forecasting labour supply of population by qualification Predicting the distribution of people by qualification Use of multi-logit qualification model Cross sectional data from the Labour Force Survey (LFS)

9 Multi-logit method Focus on Stocks of people by qualification level Propensity of a representative individual to obtain a level of highest qualification Use of multinomial logistic regression model Independent variables: − age − gender − time trends − country

10 Data issues Use of LFS microdata EU-27 (plus Norway and Switzerland) Three levels of qualification: − low: ISCED 1, 2, 3C − intermediate: ISCED 3,4 − high: ISCED 5,6

11 Forecasting labour supply of graduates by qualification Participation ratio method, focusing on flows Predictions of: − Flows through the education system − Transitions from education to the labour market Complementary to multi-logit method by IER

12 Data issues EU-27 (plus Norway and Switzerland) Three levels of qualification: − low: ISCED 1, 2, 3C − intermediate: ISCED 3,4 − high: ISCED 5,6 Fields of education whenever possible Aggregate data : Unesco/OECD/Eurostat

13 Graduation rates Two broad age groups: and years old ‘Estimation’ of trends in graduation rates per country and education Use of E3ME population forecasts Check with IER forecasts
