L5 CIPD 5RST Question 1 - Labour Market Trends

Hi everyone! 

I would hugely appreciate it if someone can help me on the following, I'm so close to getting this unit finished.. just really want to make sure I get it right. For Q1, 5RST Labour Market Trends in the UK and another country (I have chosen Greece) 

For the UK, I have summed up points and included stats and comparisons between 2019 & 2020 in regard to; changes in unemployment rates (with reference to covid); changes in recruitment intentions including some particular industry info and changes in pay increase expectations. I used the CIPD LMO survey & OFNS. For Greece, without direct comparisons to the UK, I have summed up points and including a few stats in regard to; economy; employment rates; high unemployment rate for women, young people emigration lowering countries entrepreneurial potential; difficulties integrating migrants into the labour market and covid's impact on worsening these challenges. I got this info from OECD & Statista sites. 

My questions are ..

a/ Does it matter that I haven't made a direct comparison between the two?

b/ Have I got the data from acceptable sources for both?

c/ Am I on the right track in terms of the particular labour market trends I have mentioned for both AND does it matter that they differ (ie. I haven't mentioned anything to do with gender for UK, but have for Greece. I also haven't mentioned anything to do with recruitment intentions for Greece)

Any help or reassurance is much appreciated. 

Many thanks
