    After a short break, the discussion of a possible labor market shortage for skilled and high skilled workers revived in the public debate. The paper evaluates the results of the latest IAB establishment survey for East German industrial firms with respect to planned employment within the next two years and the associated problems expected by the firms. The analysis distinguishes between the location of the firm, the size of the firms, measured by the number of employees, as well as with respect to the branch of industry the firm belongs to.. The results can be interpreted in a sense that actually there is no severe shortage of skilled labor at a large scale, but in the near future it will become more difficult for firms to find qualified employees.
