Skill shortages have important implications for economic competitiveness and social inclusion. This paper is concerned with examining contrasts in skill shortages between local areas in England, drawing on information from the 1999 Employers Skill Survey (ESS). Analyses of the incidence of skill shortage vacancies at local level reveals both broad regional and intra-regional variations. The relationships between the incidence of skill shortage vacancies and local labour market conditions are explored and a typology of Local Learning and Skills Council areas is developed, distinguishing between areas on the basis of the incidence of skill shortages relative to the national average and their relative unemployment rates.
