The table portrays the disparity in the proportion of employers who faced challenges in finding staffs in 2004 when compared to 2003.

 Overall, it is clear that the worst difficulty for the employers was to find skilled workers when compared to unskilled, technical and managerial staff.

 As per the table, in 2003, when an average of 41 to 47% job-givers encountered the issue in recruiting skilled workers, in case of unskilled workers, it ranged from 20 to 26 %. In 2004, these rates rose to 41 to 51% and 19 to 29% respectively. However, within this data, it is also clear that they did find it easier to find both skilled and unskilled workers in the commerce sector. In 2004, the rates of employers who faced this difficulty were 3 to 6% less when compared to 2003.

 In case of technical and managerial staff, the percentage of employers who found the staff shortage ranged between 2 and 14 in 2003, and the least difficulty was reported from commerce sector. The situation got better in 2004, when not even a single employer faced this issue from the same sector and the rate of those who faced the issue went down by an average 3%.
