In today’s data-driven world, interpreting labour market statistics is a crucial skill. This one-week intensive course is designed to empower students with the knowledge, critical thinking, and data visualization skills necessary to navigate the complexities of labour market data. The course delves into the multifaceted role of statistics in labour market analysis: the potential for misuse, the influence of politics, the role of statistics in social policies, and the importance of statistics to understand social and technological transitions. The course will help students visualise such statistics using R and/or STATA and provide strategies for robust interpretation of statistics on job creation, unemployment, training, and informality.
