Sub-Regional Skills Barometer 2019

Date published: 31 March 2020

This research has been produced by the Ulster University Economic Policy Centre, led by Invest NI, using the methodology developed in the Skills Barometer, in order to undertake a more detailed skills analysis at a localised level within Northern Ireland.

It is recognised that the economic and social conditions which underpin this research do not remain static and, importantly, the work was produced prior to and does not consider the impact on skills of the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Nonetheless, the research does provide valuable contextual analysis which underpins skills forecasts, outputs from the assessment of future skills demand, and a review of supply side indicators covering all of Northern Ireland’s Local Government Districts (LGD).
