Kenya_stocks.jpgA Tool for Implementing Labor Market Assessments

A stocks and flows diagram can allow the viewer to instantly visualize the composition of a labor market in terms of educational attainment and age, and to see emerging trends. This guide explains the utility of such a diagram, using the example of Kenya’s youth labor pool in 2013.  In the figure, one can see the current population (stock) and flow (transition) of students from primary all the way through the various postsecondary education tracks (Youth Polytechnic, TVET, College, and University) and into the labor market.
