Mobility in the eEconomy. Deliverable 6.2: Report on the use of administrative data to indicate ICT sector mobility in Belgium, including the comparison with LFS mobility and recommendations on better measurement of mobility in the (EU) LFS
This publication is Deliverable 6.2 of Work Package 6 ‘Mobility in the eEconomy’ of the STILE project. The project is funded under the ‘Information Society Technologies Programme’ of the European Commission. HIVA is the co-ordinator of this project. The other research partners are from Ireland, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary and the United States.<br><br> Work Package 6 seeks to reveal determinants of the mobility of ICT workers, to detail the inflow and outflow of ICT workers mobility and to look at the effect gender, age and educational background have on the ICT jobs being created. Two principal sources have been used to do so: the Labour Force Survey and the Belgian Datawarehouse Labour Market of administrative data.<br><br D6.2 concentrates on the administrative data of the Belgian Datawarehouse and gives a description of the ICT sector in Belgium in terms of its personnel. It also determines flows within the ICT sector and between ICT and other branches by regrouping the economic destination sectors of ICT personnel into broad categories. Having focussed on ICT workers mobility, D6.2 provides a methodological SWOT-analyse of both the (EU) LFS and the Belgian Datawarehouse and compares the data of both sources in order to make recommendations on a better measurement of mobility in the (EU) LFS.<br><br>The report is downloadable from this page and from the <a href="http://www.stile.be">STILE website</a>.
