Describing and understanding changes in demand for labor in retail


Retail is undergoing an unprecedented transition due to both structural (e.g., from bricks to clicks) and cyclical (e.g., Covid-19) factors. This appears to involve changes in the demand for labor. However, such changes in labor demand are poorly described and understood.

Key objectives

This project focuses on describing and understanding changes in labor demand in the retail industry. For example, which jobs/activities will stay, which will disappear, which will appear? What effects will this have on labor demand by job type in terms of for instance skills and experience? Etcetera.

Research activities

Involved research activities are diverse; one of the involved activities will be scraping data from job sites.
