On June 28, 2018, the Institute for Social Policy held a scientific seminar on the topic “Study of structural imbalances of regional labor markets.”
The seminar heard a presentation by Sergey Smirnov, PhD, director of the Center for analysis of social programs and risks, and by Alexey Kapustin, PhD, chief analyst of this Center.
The issue mentioned above is one of the most important for predicting possible unemployment and developing retraining programs. The principal items discussed during this seminar are as follows:
· What statistical sources can be used to study this issue?
· Are there differences between the labor market tracked by the Federal Service for Labor and Employment and the labor market tracked by the Survey of Labor Force?
· How big are the interregional differences?
· What proposals can be made in the context of “policy implications”?
The presented paper was elaborated within the research project “Updating the model of the public employment service in various scenarios of economic development taking into account the characteristics of regional labor markets", held under the program of the CFI-2017 (Terms of reference-146).
