Jobfeed as a source for statistical labour market information

Jobfeed is the trusted source for relevant online job market information. For over 10 years, Jobfeed has been collecting online job offers and is able to offer substantial real-time and historical information. Various research institutions and media organisations use Jobfeed in their analyses and reporting.

Statistical data

Jobfeed has collected years worth of statistical data on the Dutch labour market. Since a few years Jobfeed has also been collecting online jobs in the German and French market. The data can be analysed by several criteria, such as location, education level, profession class, industry, organisation and organisation size, and over time. Jobfeed adds data on a daily basis, enabling both a real-time and a historical overview of the job market.

How does Jobfeed work?

Jobfeed derives this information by continuously crawling the web for online job postings. Each page found is classified as being a job vacancy or not. The pages containing job postings are collected, cleaned and parsed to extract relevant content. Jobfeed categorises the content and enriches it with information such as company and industry information. The job postings are then deduplicated against possible copies and made searchable in the Jobfeed-portal.
