- Although it is difficult to ascertain the exact number of open Analytics job openings for a given month, approximately 93,500 open jobs are available at the end of August 2020 according to the analysis carried out by AIMResearch.
- These open jobs are available jobs to be filled in the Data Analytics function at any given point in time and are not the absolute number of new jobs created each month.
- The Analytics jobs figure for August 2020 is a 1.6% drop in open jobs requirement compared to the same period last year (August 2019).
- Last year, while there were changes in the number of open job positions early in the year, the average number of open positions for the full year was about 90,500.
- COVID-19 Effect on Open Jobs: There was a drop or contraction in open jobs year-on-year in the months of June and July 2020 – 11% and 17% respectively. This contraction is due to the recessionary environment, which is caused by the unfortunate pandemic. Moreover, from a peak of 109,000 in February 2020, the open jobs figure fell to a low of 82,500 in May 2020. The effect of the recession and the pandemic on the open jobs figures is detailed in relevant sections of the report.
- To study the relative effects of the recessionary environment on the proportion of open jobs, AIMResearch has carried out a comparative study of the open jobs percentages for August 2020 (after lockdown) with January 2020 (before lockdown), apart from the usual annual comparisons.
In August 2020, India contributed to 9.8% of the total global Analytics job openings. This is a significant jump from the figure of 7.2% of total global job openings in January of this year. During the same period last year (August 2019), India contributed approximately 7% of worldwide open job requirements.
