Scottish Labour Market Trends

Labour Market Trends is jointly produced by The Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) and The Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER) and aims to shed light on key developments in Scotland’s labour market. Alongside a summary of recent trends and the future outlook, the report also highlights longer trend developments and areas for discussion.

Please note: The FAI's Scottish Labour Market Trends is moving from quarterly to semi-annual publication. The next publication will be in November.

Over the past couple of years Scotland’s labour market has performed much better than the data for economic growth might suggest.
