The poster gives an overview of labour demand forecasts on the Estonian labour market by region and specific occupation.

The poster shows the balance between labour supply and demand after the next 12 months: we evaluate what the ratio will be between the existing labour force on the labour market and employers' demand by occupation. Will there be a labour surplus, labour shortage or a balance in occupations on the labour market?

For Estonia as a whole we highlight those professions where at least half of the entire Estonian workforce is amassed in the counties assessed or which were assessed in at least half of the counties (more information here: Methodology).
