Qualitative Employment Multipliers for Belgium, Results for 2000 and 2002 [Working Paper 15-07]

The paper describes how an input-output table can be linked to detailed employment data in order to provide qualitative employment multipliers. Qualitative employment multipliers specify the direct and indirect labour use by final demand products of worker types differentiated by gender, age class, professional status, educational attainment level, labour regime or a combination of these characteristics.

The paper discusses the methodological issues involved in compiling qualitative employment multipliers, with special attention to the homogenisation of employment data, and presents results for the Belgian economy for 2000 and 2002. These are based on input-output tables, a make matrix and disaggregated employment data for these years. It explores how qualitative employment multipliers can be updated.

The paper suggests three descriptive applications of qualitative employment multipliers. The first is to identify activities with a high employment multiplier for low-skilled workers. The second is to compute the high-skilled labour content of the production of ICT goods and services. The third is to generate qualitative employment multipliers per final demand component, distinguishing exports, investment and household or government consumption.
