Footnotes

  1. The sum of vacancies by occupation is slightly lower than the total number of vacancies shown in the core indicator file. (This is also the case for hard-to-fill and skill-shortage vacancies.) This is because the survey only collects detailed information on up to 6 different occupations per establishment, in order to prevent excessively long interviews. If the intention is to show the total number of vacancies, use the core indicator file.
  2. For some vacancies, there is insufficient information from respondents to code a particular occupation (i.e. a 4 digit SOC code). In these cases, the vacancy is shown as 'not codeable to this level of SOC'. The vacancies are shown at a higher levels of occupational aggregation (e.g. a 3, 2 or 1 digit SOC code) where there is enough information to allow this.
