Social Situation Monitor

Each year the Social Situation Monitor:

  • carries out policy-relevant analysis and research on the current socio-economic situation in the EU on the basis of the most recent available data
  • examines major issues which are features of the situation or affect it with the aim of providing evidence on which to base policy-making across the EU.
