Abstract
The Swiss Job Market Monitor (SJMM, www.stellenmarktmonitor.uzh.ch) is devoted to a systematic monitoring and analysis of the Swiss labor market. For this purpose, SJMM has compiled a dataset of job openings in the Swiss economy dating back to 1950. The dataset is based on representative samples of job advertisements drawn from all advertising channels that are relevant at the given time.

In 2001, the project switched from its original retrospective survey design to a fully compatible prospective monitoring of the job market that also covers online advertising media. In addition, the initial limitation of the ad survey to German-speaking Switzerland was expanded to cover all of Switzerland from 2001 on.

In the course of the ad survey, the complete ad text is first recorded to enable text-based as well as qualitative analyses of the development of job openings. Second, the information provided in the job ads on the requirements and characteristics of the job openings, the person wanted, and the business placing the job ad are recorded and prepared for quantitative statistical analyses.

The database created in this manner thus opens a multitude of new opportunities for qualitative and quantitative social scientific analyses of both long-term and current trends in the Swiss labor market. This obviously applies to developments in the volume and structure of job openings and the skills demand in the Swiss economy. Yet its potential goes far beyond by offering a much wider range of opportunities for research once the SJMM data are combined with data from other sources (TREE, SAKE, and others more).
Results
a) Skills demand and structural change

The SJMM analyses attest to steadily increasing requirements in regard to formal qualifications, occupational experience, advanced education, and soft skills over the past 60 years (Sacchi, Salvisberg, and Buchmann 2005; Salvisberg 2008a, 2010a). This development has led to a labor market marked by a sharp decline in low-skilled jobs and an ever more pronounced surplus demand at the top end of the skills spectrum. The main drivers of this continuing increase in occupational requirements are, first, the tertiarization and structural transformation of the population of businesses and other employing organizations and, second, the diffusion of information technology in the course of which the rise in skills requirements has gained increasing momentum since the early 1980’s (ibid.). These increasing requirements provide the most plausible explanation for the long-term increase in unemployment among fresh VET graduates (cf. Sacchi and Salvisberg 2011a, 2011b, 2014).

b) Labor market opportunities and occupational mobility

The requirements in terms of skills and other characteristics in the job ads define the realm of job opportunities potentially available to jobseekers. Linking the job data with micro data on the workforce makes it possible to investigate the influence that these opportunities have on individual career pathways. Studies using this approach have been able to show how the jobs potentially available to individual members of the workforce vary according to their skills and other individual characteristics (Kriesi, Buchmann, and Sacchi 2010), how available jobs influence the transition to self-employment (Buchman, Kriesi, and Sacchi 2009), and how they affect interruptions in the employment careers of women and men and their reentry into the labor market later on (Kriesi 2006). A study on the significance of different types of job opportunities for upward, downward, and lateral occupational mobility has shown that the frequency and direction of individual status mobility depends to a remarkable extent on the status distribution of the vacancies within the occupational subsegments of the job market that are potentially accessible on the basis of the vocational qualifications acquired (Buchmann, Kriesi, and Sacchi in preparation). A number of studies based on various individual-level datasets have demonstrated the great significance of individual job opportunities for successful labor market integration in the transition from education to employment (Buchs in preparation, Bundel and Buchmann in preparation, Müller, Bundel, and Buchmann in preparation). All in all, there is considerable empirical evidence pointing to the major significance of labor market opportunities for occupational mobility and social stratification.

c) Gender segregation and hiring preferences

There has been a substantial increase in the proportion of job advertisements worded in gender-neutral language over the past 60 years. A study referring to the example of the hotel and restaurant industry has shown that there has been a long-term change in the pattern of vertical segregation and that the labor market for management positions in particular has been opening up for women (Salvisberg 2004). Of particular interest in this context is whether the observed increase in gender-neutral ads reflects a ‘real’ change in hiring preferences in specific occupations or whether it is a cosmetic adjustment to the guiding cultural principle of equal opportunity for women and men that does not actually affect the substance of businesses’ hiring practices. An exploratory analysis of combined ad and census data has provided evidence that, in a cross-sectional perspective, there is a close connection between segregation in reality and the segregation reflected in job ads and that, in a longitudinal perspective, a drop in male-oriented advertising in a specific occupation comes with notable desegregation. Thus, the advertisements reflect a real, far-reaching change in businesses’ hiring preferences (Buchmann 2011).

d) Methodological findings on data quality

Buchs and Sacchi (2012) have shown, first, that the job market monitor covers an average of 75 percent of all vacancies. Particularly positions that are difficult to fill and for which there is surplus demand are advertised with disproportionate frequency and are therefore well represented in the monitoring. Second, the extensive tests, which have been conducted repeatedly, testify to high intercoder reliability in the coding of the job ads (Salvisberg 2004; Buchs and Müller 2014). Third, various analyses confirm that the external data validity is very high, particularly in regard to businesses’ labor and skills demand (Sacchi, Salvisberg, and Buchmann 2005: 113f. and Appendix A–C; Sacchi 2007; 2008; Sacchi and Salvisberg 2011b: Appendix C).
Methods (description)
Collection of job ad data:

Representative annual random samples of job advertisements drawn from the press are available for the period since 1950 and since 2001 also from the Internet. The press survey is based on a random sample of some 70 advertising papers and newspapers published in German-speaking Switzerland that is stratified according to region and circulation. Approximately 30 titles from French- and Italian-speaking have been included since 2001. The Internet survey collects ad data from the websites of a representative panel of businesses with locations in Switzerland. The initial sample – stratified by business size and industry – comprised some 1,000 businesses listed in the Swiss Business and Enterprise Register (BER). The sample was expanded to include 1,500 businesses in the course of panel readjustment in 2010. From 2006 on, the Internet survey has additionally covered the largest online job portals in Switzerland. In this process of expanding the sample base, the size of the annual ad samples has been increased from initially 500 job ads published in the press to now nearly 4,000 ads published through all advertising channels that are significant today. As a result of switching from a retrospective to a prospective survey mode in 2001, the job monitor provides current job market data on a yearly basis that are fully compatible with the full range of datasets dating back to 1950. This makes it possible to analyze developments in the job market with minimal delay and distinguish between long-term trends, business cycles, and new developments.

The SJMM Scientific Use File contains, first, the complete corpus of job ad data in raw text format, which can be used for text-based analyses. Job ads are defined as advertisements of job openings for gainful employment irrespective of the number of hours, duration of the employment relationship, and type of employment. Second, the SUF contains a dataset of information regularly provided in the ads, describing the job opening, the person wanted, and the business advertising the job. Standardized procedures are used to organize this information into categories that are appropriate for statistical analyses (coding). A high reliability of coding is ensured by providing clear, comprehensible, and comprehensive rules for coding on the one hand and intensive training of coding staff on the other to make sure that the coders interpret and apply these rules consistently.

Business survey:

Beginning in 2001, SJMM has conducted a standardized business panel survey parallel to the ad survey on a yearly basis. One of the purposes of this annual panel survey is to assess the growing or diminishing importance of various advertising media in order to adjust the set of media included in the ad survey as necessary so that it corresponds with businesses’ advertising practices.
