Forecasting the Egyptian Labour Market
Under the roof of the TVET Reform Program of the European Commission and the Egyptian government, the GWS developed in collaboration with the IDSC (Information and Decision Support Center of the Egyptian Observatory for Education, Training and Employment) an analytical tool to evaluate the Egyptian labour market. Based on time series analysis, a quantitative projection model was developed in order to match labour demand and supply on occupational as well as on qualification level. The projection horizon was set until 2016. The overall aim was to develop a system, that was able to identify malfunctioning and disequilibrium on the labour market and that could be applied for conducting labour market policy.
