Workforce requirements change under the influence of changes in the achieved level of human knowledge in the organization of work and work procedures. These changes are constantly taking place, differing in nature and pace. At present, the rapid pace of these changes is characteristic. This is caused by automation, digitization, and robotics, which penetrate all spheres of society. Knowing the changes in the labour market in regions, is important for the development of society. The aim of the paper is to comprehensively evaluate changes in the labor market in the regions of Slovakia, using multidimensional statistical methods.
