Detail

This analysis (based on the Labour Force Survey and other data) looks at science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills in the workforce. It forecasts the supply of STEM graduates, as well as industry’s demand for these graduates, projected to 2020 under different economic growth scenarios, both positive and neutral.

The report also focuses on the sectors and regions which have skills ‘potholes’ which may hold back growth.
