STILE

Project description

STILE aims to support the statistical requirements of the IST Programme by providing innovative methodologies and content on the statistical monitoring of the labour market in the e-economy.
This includes the finetuning of statistics to match the e-economy and the monitoring of ICT -related work patterns.
The project involves users systematically, and involves nine expert partners.
The existing activities aimed at the extension of the coding on e-work used in national Labour Force Survey (LFS ) will be analysed, in order to provide a proposal for the fine tuning of NACE and ISCO classification; an internationally harmonised module on telework for LFS ; a module to cover ICT in business panel surveys; the analysis of sectoral mobility in ICT ; the construction of ICT occupational profiles and the benchmark of the profiling methodologies. The project's activities will be disseminated through several tools and a concluding European conference on these issues.

Objectives:

  • Innovative methodologies and content on the statistical monitoring of the labour market in the e-economy, to support the statistic requirements of the IST Programme;
  • Extended coding of the CLFS for the disclosure of e-work;
  • Update NACE rev. 1 to include e-enterprises and ISCO 88 to include e-work;
  • Methodological benchmarks and a module for existing business panel surveys for taking into account ICT -related labour market issues;
  • A module for LFS to monitor the dissemination of telework;
  • The analysis of sectoral mobility in ICT , using Eurostat LFS and administrative data;
  • Description of profiles of ICT -related occupations, including required qualifications, training needs, type of contracts and likely future developments; benchmark according to regional differences in ICT penetration;
  • User-friendly dissemination tools;
  • A project website and newsletter, a concluding European conference targeted at policymakers, scientists, representatives of statistical bodies and all relevant users.
