Advances in labour market data, particularly national statistics office data coordinated by Eurostat, mean that it is now possible to return data to citizens in increasingly useful ways. This policy document is based on the experience of the HECAT project in researching, developing and piloting the tool, in partnership with ESS, the Slovenian Public Employment Service, and reports on the challenges and opportunities of turning labour market data into a citizen tool.

Traditionally this data has been developed for economic planners and policy makers, and so the data infrastructure has been designed to be aggregated, for the relatively short timelines of policymakers and using constructs that are useful to national planning. We encountered four challenges in returning this data to the people from whom it was collected.

We outlined our prototyped and piloted solution and showcased the three key MyLabourMarket Tools:

  • Pay Visibility
  • Time Unemployed Estimates
  • Job Quality
