Clicking towards Mozambique's New Jobs: A research note

    Online jobs portals can be an important source of labour market information, also in developing countries. This paper presents an illustration from Mozambique, a country that has exhibited high economic growth rates but limited employment creation as other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. First, we highlight the potential but also pitfalls of these portals in characterising and improving the functioning of the labour market. We then analyse the micro (mouse-click-level) data made available by a portal focused on the formal sector of the Mozambique labour market. Our evidence is also consistent with high levels of unemployment and or underemployment. The findings are also suggestive of mismatches between labour demand and the supply of schooling and training.
