The report synthesises the main points to come out of the 27 national studies produced by the Evaluation Network of independent experts on jobs created as a core indicator of ERDF programmes outcomes. Its main concern is with the comparability of the figures reported and how far they can be meaningfully aggregated across programmes, which has become increasingly important given the growing policy attention paid to job creation across the EU. It examines, in turn, the extent to which the indicator is used; the way it is defined and method of data collection; the coverage of the figures reported; the use made of the indicator, the average cost per job created; how far estimates are made of net as well as gross jobs and Managing Authority (MA) familiarity with the definition of the indicator for the next programming period.
