Capturing advanced technology skills through LinkedIn

The ATI project has gathered new evidence about the employment of skilled professionals across industries and countries at the level of individual advanced technologies relying on data from the self-reported skills of professionals in LinkedIn, a widely used and accepted online job platform.

To harvest the data from LinkedIn, keywords capturing skills by advanced technology have been defined and queries have subsequently been constructed to filter the database by location and industry.

The representativeness of the LinkedIn sample has been assessed against several criteria including the level of education, gender and the share of registered users in information and communications technology and science and engineering compared to the actual active population in these fields in each individual country resulting in a corrective weighting.
