I’m teaching at Høgskolen i Innlandet again today. In today’s session I’m working with the Masters students looking at labour market statistics. In essence I’m going to be arguing that we need to make sure that our reading of the labour market is evidence based – this means that we need to build up our data literacy and also to develop our clients ability to read, critique and use labour market data.

This is what I’m planning to cover

Lies, damn lies and labour market statistics


  1. Myths about graduate labour markets is *my* schtick Tristram, which I why I will feel no guilt whatsoever about stealing some of the excellent slides here, especially that superb one on job mobility.

    Really interesting. Makes me want to investigate regional labour markets in Norway!
