Abstract

The aim of this paper is to clarify what is meant by labour demand in the Department of Higher Education and Training's (DHET) Labour Market Intelligence Partnership (LMIP) project, to highlight the sources of data that can be used to understand labour demand and that are available to the LMIP and to make a distinction between analysing and forecasting labour demand.
