Defining and Measuring Unmet Labour Demand
This paper first clarifies the distinction between vacancies as ‘job openings’ (recruitment processes), which are measured in traditional vacancy statistics, and vacancies as ‘unfilled jobs’ (unmet labour demand). It then presents a method of measuring unmet demand in enterprise surveys and illustrates this method with statistics from a new vacancy survey in Sweden.
