EU Employment and Social Situation - Quarterly Review - March 2014  (26/03/2014)

Catalog N. : KE-BH-14-001-EN-N

According to this edition of the EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review, the recent and currently fragile economic recovery has not yet been able to create new jobs and the social situation in the EU shows little signs of improvement so far. The improved outcomes in the EU labour markets are still at best modest. Employment showed the first signs of stabilising in 2013, with a 0.1% growth in the second half of the year. This analysis also points to an expected increase in poverty levels and a slight improvement in the impact of social protection expenditure in 2013, even if its support effect remains very weak. The situation for households remains serious. The income that households have at their disposal is lagging behind the growth of Gross Domestic Product. It provides also empirical evidence that the crisis at its height had the strongest adverse impact on labour market transitions of men and young people.

Social Agenda 32 - Employment and social analysis  (01/02/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-AF-12-032-EN-C

A silent revolution is underway in the field of employment and social data collection and analysis, giving a much more vivid picture of what people are going through and how they are evolving over time. This issue of Social Agenda focuses on the methodology of data collection and its political consequences. For the EU to reach its objective of generating inclusive growth by 2020, social policy must be considered not so much in terms of expenditure but rather as an investment in Europe's most precious asset: its own people or, as economists would say, its "human capital". Social Agenda is available in English, French and German.
