• The Austrian Public Employment Service (AMS) has been testing a system for the statistical profiling of obseekers since the end of 2018. On the basis of forecasting, jobseekers are divided into three groups to which different resources for further training are allocated. • Administrative data, which form the basis of the model, provide a specific and simplified view of labour market opportunities. • Consequently, specific training on the use of algorithms, comprehensive transparency on their effects, and social participation are needed.
