Although there is a common saying that states “Projections are difficult to make, especially when directed towards the future”, they are indispensable when it comes to indications about potential future developments (emphasis on potential). Projections help develop political concepts and solutions to better overcome future challenges, for example, potential skills shortages due to demographic shifts, and even to avoid the identified problem, for example, by expanding the (further) training of teachers in order to counteract the (projected) teacher shortage.
