The European Data Market Study also measures the data worker skill gap in Europe. It captures the potential gap between demand and supply of data worker skills. Here are the main findings: In 2016 Europe experienced an imbalance between demand and supply of 420,000 unfilled data workers positions, corresponding to 6.2% of total demand – up 0.3% from the same value for 2015.
