RDA Calgary Outlook
10-YEAR EMPLOYMENT DEMAND FORECAST UNVELIED TO CALGARY BUSINESS COMMUNITY.
Registered nurses, IT specialists and accountants among
top jobs for projected growth.
(CALGARY, AB) – In response to the unprecedented economic growth Alberta has seen
in recent years and the shortage of skilled labour, Calgary Economic Development
(CED) has recognized the need for detailed employment forecasts in order to develop
market strategies aimed at increasing the availability of skilled labour.
CED, through its program CalgaryWorks, commissioned consultants HDR Economics and
RDA Global to develop a 10-year forecast of employment demand. The model was developed
to generate a forecast of employment demand for the next 10 years, for each major
occupation within each industry and key sector in Calgary. The results of the forecast
model will be presented today at the CED media centre.

executive summary of RDAGlobal
Raymond Duch, the President of RDA Global has just published “The Economic
Vote” with Cambridge University Press. This book proposes a selection
model for explaining cross-national variation in economic voting:Rational voters
condition the economic vote on whether incumbents are responsible for economic outcomes,
because this is the optimal way to identify and elect competent economic managers under conditions of uncertainty.
This model explores how political and economic institutions alter the quality
of the signal that the previous economy provides about the competence of candidates.
The rational economic voter is also attentive to strategic cues regarding the responsibility
of parties for economic outcomes and their electoral competitiveness. Theoretical
propositions are derived, linking variation in economic and political institutions
to variability in economic voting. The authors demonstrate that there is economic
voting, and that it varies significantly across political contexts. The data consist
of 165 election studies conducted in 19 different countries over a 20-year time
