    Abstract

    This paper focuses on Scotland’s changing labour market, and in particular on recent trends in occupational structure and the impact these are having on job polarisation and on particular occupational groups, such as administration and lower skilled production. The paper also considers future labour market trends, and discusses potential approaches to address the negative impacts of jobs polarisation.
