Title Labour market and Employment
Alternate Title Jobs Density [3]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract The job density indicator compares the number of jobs in a municipality with its resident population of working age (15 to 64 years). It supplements the employment rate indicator by tackling an important issue: even when most persons are employed, their jobs are not necessarily located in the same municipality. That is why mapping the indicator values in the year 2000 shows a spatial distribution where local differences dominate over regional differences, resulting in a mosaic structure. However, the spatial pattern of the indicator is not completely independent of physical characteristics: job densities tend to be pretty high in high mountain areas and low at lower altitudes, although counter-examples can easily be found.
