SKILL GAPS SKILL SHORTAGES AND SKILL MISMATCHES - EVIDENCE FOR THE U.S.

A new working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research provides the results of Peter Cappelli’s research on skill gaps, skills shortages and skill mismatches. Cappelli examines the evidence that has been presented in favor of the skills shortages argument and complaints about skills are driving much of the debate around labor force and education policy. Mr. Cappelli examines the range of these charges as well as other evidence about skills in the labor force. The paper suggest that there is very little evidence consistent with the complaints about skills and a wide range of evidence suggesting that they are not true. The research paper considers three possible explanations for the employer complaints as well as the implications associated with those changes. You can view the article at http://www.nber.org/papers/w20382 This report is also feature on the LMI Community of Practice at https://winwin.workforce3one.org/view/SKILL_GAPS_SKILL_SHORTAGES_AND_SKILL_MISMATCHES_EV/info

ETA Real-Time LMI Environmental Scan of Vendors and Workforce Development Users

Several private sector entities have developed software that collects online job postings by "scraping" or "spidering" the listings from the Internet and organizing them into standardized data categories. These private sector entities have also built tools that permit analysis by those looking for current and detailed information on hiring trends and employer demand (including certifications and skill prerequisites). Diverse users including state and local governments, workforce boards, educational institutions, economic development entities, and research organizations license the RT LMI tools to better understand state, regional, and local labor market conditions. Many view RT LMI as an important new data source, but are unfamiliar with how best to use it and place it within the context of traditional survey-based LMI. In late 2013, ETA began a technical assistance project to increase knowledge of the RT LMI landscape and support selected states in building their capacity to utilize the new data sources. ETA began a technical assistance project to increase knowledge of the RT LMI landscape and support selected states in building their capacity to utilize the new data sources. ETA awarded a technical assistance contract to Maher & Maher, which is collaborating with Jobs for the Future (JFF) and the New York City Labor Market Information Service (NYCLMIS). As part of the technical assistance project, this Environmental Scan of Vendors and Workforce Development Users seeks to inform people in the workforce development system in particular about the most common uses, successes, and challenges of RT LMI. It provides an overview of major RT LMI vendors and their products and services. It also profiles how three states and three regional workforce development knowledge centers are using RT LMI to identify and address labor market issues.
