Werner, Dirk / Risius, Paula / Jansen, Anika, 2021, Neue Wege oder Irrwege für den Ausbildungsmarkt? Wie die Parteien Ausbildungsangebot und -nachfrage erhöhen wollen: Eine kritische Bewertung der Parteiprogramme durch das IW, IW-Policy Paper, Nr. 21, Köln
Some of the demands made by the political parties in their election programs for the federal elections are specifically aimed at increasing the demand for and supply of vocational education and training. In this analysis, the measures are evaluated economically based on empirical data and previous research findings.
The present IW-Report introduces a new methodology for measuring the shortage of skilled workers and thus makes a central contribution to mapping the skilled worker situation in Germany. First, a definition of the term "shortage of skilled workers" is presented. Afterwards, its operationalization is discussed.
