The job turnover indicator provides the percentage of employed people that started to work in a certain occupation during last 12 months. The indicator can serve as a tool how to assess the frequency of job change in an occupation and thus also approximate for the level of available job opportunities: the higher the percentage, the higher the chances people were able to find work in the occupation. It does not mean though that occupations with higher job turnover provide better prospects; the down side of the turnover is that there may be less stability and job security for people employed in the occupation. For example the highest job turnover for Elementary workers is also influenced by a lot of short term or seasonal work contracts. Note: All estimations are Skills intelligence Team own calculations based on Eurostat data.
