COMBINING DATA SOURCES TO UNDERSTAND CHANGES IN THE LABOR MARKET

The third issue of The Future of Work in Latin America and the Caribbean series combines new and traditional labor market data sources to understand what are the most in-demand occupations and skills in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Using LinkedIn data, we introduce "the Labor Market GPS", a tool aimed at helping workers transition from declining to emerging occupations. Another key insight in this publication is that labor market polarization is still partial in the region, as opposed to OECD countries.
