IDB partners with LinkedIn for job data to guide COVID-19 recovery

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is collaborating with US-based business and employment-oriented online service, LinkedIn, to measure key labour indicators as a means to guide COVID-19 pandemic recovery efforts in Latin America and the Caribbean.
 
The first analysis released indicates growth in the digital economy and the field of technology, as well as heightened demand for technological skills in Latin America and the Caribbean.
 
According to the study, there was a 70 per cent drop in hiring in Latin America and the Caribbean at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
The field of information technology has seen the strongest jobs growth since the pandemic began compared to education, where the hiring rate had not yet rebounded to its February 2020 level.
