How the Jobs Demand Report system works

How the Jobs Demand Report works

The real-time Jobs Demand Report’s intelligence gathering system provides ongoing monitoring of online job postings with extensive quality assurance to analyze and compile each local/regional job demand report. Provided in customizable monthly or quarterly reports, our Data Warehouse and Reporting Engine allows for the creation of dozens of pre-built reports or the creation of user generated ad-hoc reports. Our technology allows for the extraction of important information about each online job posting, including the following metrics:

  • Employer industry (NAICS)
  • Occupational Category (NOCS)
  • Job Source
  • Salary Range
  • Job Qualifications
  • Required Education
  • Type of job (full-time/part-time, contract/permanent)

Regional Labour Supply Report

Traditional labour market information (LMI) sources can’t always provide reliable and current answers to these questions. MDB Insight and Vicinity Jobs are addressing these LMI challenges by analyzing the online footprint of active job seekers through a new Labour Supply Report.

The Labour Supply Report gives insight into the educational, occupational, and industrial background of workers at the local level.

Vicinity Jobs’ labour supply analytics aggregates and analyzes current information about the supply of labour in Ontario using the same technology and algorithms used to monitor and analyze job postings in the Jobs Demand Report.

Benefits of the Labour Supply Report

  • Workforce development and community organizations can access more more timely and accurate LMI than is available elsewhere.
  • Identifying the skills and education available in the local workforce can help economic developers pinpoint a community’s strengths and weaknesses, vital information for attracting investment and supporting existing businesses.
  • Businesses can use the Labour Supply Report to better understand their local labour market and the availability of the talent they need to grow.
  • The Labour Supply Report helps workers understand job availability and labour market trends. For younger workers, this means more informed career decisions and more rapid entrance into the labour market.
  • There are several options to meet the needs of subscribers to the Labour Supply Report, whether a workforce development agency, an economic development organization or a post-secondary institution. Online report access makes it easy for subscribers to find the information they need.

Reliability of the Labour Supply Report

Drawing from extensive experience, MDB Insight and Vicinity Jobs know reliable analysis of labour availability must be verifiable and up-to-date. It is important to separate participants and non-participants in the labour market. Availability of sufficient information to allow identification of duplicate profiles and analysis by education, credentials, and experience is essential. Vicinity Jobs provides reliable, current local labour supply information that meets stringent criteria for data source eligibility.
