Commentary by Stephen Downes

If you are doing a survey on skill needs, and you haven't really done anything like this before, use this guide, It's clear and informative, and I think it covers the ground well, leading the user toward an accurate and appropriate methodology (section 4, which details coverage of sectors and coverage of occupational groups, is evidence for this). "It illustrates an approach tested in 2012 for identifying employer’s skill needs, in nine Member States. The guide offers recommendations for a survey covering a range of occupations, sample size calculations, maximising response rates, and ensuring the validity of the instrument as well as subsequent inferences."
