Where are the jobs?

Learn about employment patterns across sectors and occupations in Where are the jobs?, the second issue of our new series Spotlight on work statistics.

Labour markets are evolving and adapting to technological advances, innovations in business and production processes and the emergence of new economic activities, the demand for new services and the data revolution. Global employment has been increasing for many decades now, and is expected to continue doing so at least in the near future. But where is this employment being created? Which sectors and occupations are growing? Where are jobs being lost?

For answers to these questions, read our brief on employment patterns across sectors and occupations.
