The World Bank Group and LinkedIn established this data sharing initiative with the aim of helping workers around the world access work opportunities that make good use of their talents and skills. The stakeholders hope that the insights generated from this data can inform economic policy that can boost employment and growth. For the first phase of this collaboration, LinkedIn shared data from more than 100 countries with at least 100,000 LinkedIn members each, distributed across 148 industries and 50,000 skill categories. The data is publicly accessible through a website, which also offers visuals of some insights generated from the data. While anyone can access the data, the stakeholders are targeting policy analysts, economists, and researchers in particular.
