The Blind Spot of Employment Statistics - Educational and Demographic Characteristics of Non-Registered Graduates in the Labor Market Administration System
In our interpretation behind this blind spot three current tendencies could be considered:
- The development of the informal sector or shadow economy offers non-registered employment for graduates. (i.e. Hypotheses of informal sector employment)
- The delayed transition period from school to work has led to postponed employment among young graduates. (i.e. Hypotheses of youth in transition)
- The growing mobility trend of employment abroad increased the proportion of non-registered graduates in national labor market statistics (i.e. Hypotheses of international employment mobility)
During the investigation, we strive to identify underlying demographic and educational/structural dimensions in the interpretation of these trends. As a result of the research several graduate clusters will be characterized to describe the background determinants of non-registered employment. The characteristics of these groups can be further enriched reflecting on survey data on the same population.
