EU Employment and Social Situation - Quarterly Review - December 2014

The economic recovery which started in the EU in the spring of 2013 remains subdued and recent GDP forecasts for the EU have been revised down. However, despite the weak macroeconomic background, employment has shown a small but consistent growth in the EU since mid-2013, in the large majority of EU Member States, and across the large majority of sectors. Many challenges remain in the EU, with important social consequences, in particular long-term unemployment and low employment opportunities for youth (15-24) and young adults aged 25-39. These are some of the main conclusions of the European Commission's latest Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review. A tool is provided to facilitate the access to regularly updated underlying data, charts and tables. These are accessible from the document or downloadable from the web. This Report is available in electronic format in English only.
