With the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution comes the increasing demand for data science and analytics (DSA) workforce. DSA skills, however, remain underdeveloped among the Philippine workforce.  This infographic answers the question: “Are the DSA-related undergraduate degree programs able to supply the current demands for DSA talents?” It provides evidence on the current DSA skill gaps, identifies specific DSA competencies, and recommends actions to address the challenges in preparing the future DSA workforce.

This infographic is based on PIDS Policy Notes titled “Aligning Higher Education with Demands for Data Science Workforce” written by Brenda A. Quismorio, Maria Antonette D. Pasquin, and Claire S. Tayco, PIDS consultants.  This publication may be downloaded here: https://www.pids.gov.ph/publications/6959.
