Yrkesprognoser makes it possible to show forecasts of recruitment needs in different professions/professional groups for one and five years respectively. The forecasts are based on interviews with employers that are conducted twice a year by Statistics Sweden/the Swedish Public Employment Service. The API also provides information on the competitive situation a job seeker can expect in different professions/professional groups.

The API is especially useful for companies and organisations that offer professional and study guidance services and wish to help their customers/target groups make informed decisions for career and study choices. It is also useful for other actors who want in-depth insights into developments in the labour market.

The API is freely available.

COVID 19: Covid-19 has changed the labour market situation for some professions. The forecasts that should be interpreted with caution are marked in the file Bedömmningar att flagga.
