Abstract:

This report presents forecasts to 2015 for labour supply, working age population and labour force participation rates. The report describes the methodology and the conceptual framework for the forecasting process. These are designed to enable annual updates. The methodology is new, both because of its level of detail and because it accounts for the qualification profile of the labour force, as well as age and gender profiles.

The forecast growth in labour supply in the period to 2013 is supported mainly by increases in working age population. The female working age population increases more than that for males. The forecasts show steady overall participation rates in the medium term. By comparison, female labour force participation rates show continued growth, particularly as proportionately more females have qualifications, especially degree qualifications. Participation rates rise as qualification levels rise.
