Thursday, 10 March, 2016

The Institute for Employment Research (IAB) of the German Federal Employment Agency (BA) and Istat announce a Workshop on the theme of Labour Market Areas development and use.

This will be the occasion to share current initiatives and experiences in the field of LMAs and attend an initial training on the version of the TTWA algorithm by Coombes and Bond (2007) implemented at Istat with the help of members of Eurostat Task Force on “Harmonised Labour Market Areas”.

This occasion will represent also the starting phase for sharing guidelines for harmonised development of labour market areas at EU level.

The focus of the workshop will be on sharing ideas, experiences and present methods and algorithms. Interaction among participants is essential in order to create a group that will collaborate in developing harmonised guidelines and further improve methods in the field of LMAs and their use in official statistics.

The workshop will be held on the 15th and 16th June 2016 at IAB, Nuremberg, Germany.
