* A “skills gap” is defined by the source as when an employee is not fully proficient, i.e. is not able to do their job to the required level. Please see page 181 of the source report for a more detailed description

Methodology and background note (from source):
To ascertain the number of staff with skills gaps, respondents were asked, for each major (one-digit SOC 2010) occupation where they employed staff, how many of those they employed were fully proficient. If respondents asked for clarification, then a proficient employee was described as ‘someone who is able to do their job to the required level’.
