The data have been compiled from job advertisements, and each individual vacancy mentioned in the advertisements has been counted. The data include information on open vacancies, employers, and the process of filling the job vacancies.

The information on open vacancies covers variables such as the location, occupation, and duration of the vacancy, the employer's industry of employment, educational requirements, working hours, staff size, type of workplace, deadline for applications, and the starting date of the job.
