Find below dedicated dashboards of indicators providing a panorama of comprehensive views about skills supply, demand and matching across the EU. Indicators are the building blocks of skills intelligence visualisations. They are based on datasets (such as Labour Force Survey, or Cedefop Skills Forecast), sourced by various organisations (such as Eurostat or Cedefop).

An indicator is a slice of the data, providing a particular piece of information, such as future employment growth, unemployment rate or task importance. This information can usually be broken down even further - most often by occupation, education, age, gender or sector. Indicators can also relate to most important topics of Cedefop work.
