Important: Please note!

Please note that Cedefop's skills intelligence based on OJAs is being continuously improved. Posted by millions of employers on thousands of websites, with no standard structure or format, the data undergo extensive cleaning and processing. Sound analysis and contextualisation helps avoid interpretation errors and biases. You are advised to use Skills-OVATE as a complement to other sources, such as skills or household surveys. Please read Cedefop’s publications to learn about OJA based skills intelligence and challenges related to the use of big data to inform skills policies.

Data visualisation is powered by Tableau public. By using the tool you agree with the general policies of Tableau.

This dashboard shows how skill demand develops over time. It displays the change (%) in the number of OJAs that required the selected skill group in the last available quarter compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

Dashboard controls: you can select country and skills classification (ESCO or O*NET) from the drop-down menus. The most relevant countries are displayed only when the most detailed skills level (third level) is selected. You can select more than one skill group by holding down the CTRL key. To undo your selection, click on the selected items again. To undo the entire selection, refresh the window.
