Included in the appendixes is information about the document's data sources (demographic statistics, the European Union Labour Force Survey, vocational education and training data collection, and the Continuing Vocational Training Survey in Enterprises) and the categories included in the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities and the internal Standard Classification of Occupations.
