Numbers pertaining to job vacancies are provided by the respective national labour market authorities and therefore only include open positions these authorities have been notified of by employers on a voluntary basis. They are updated monthly and made available by the 15th of the subsequent month.
On average, 40 to 50 percent of job vacancies are reported to the labour market authorities. All other vacancies are not included in the data. However, the figures presented here still reflect general trends in the job market and provide information on the current demand for labour in the region.
The publication “Quartalsbericht zum Arbeitsmarkt in der REGIO Bodensee”, a quarterly report on the labour market in the Lake Constance region, outlines trends with regard to job vacancies on a regular basis. It also lists the ten occupational groups for which the number of reported open positions is highest – as well as the respective unemployment figures (Top Ten).
