Employment and Social Developments in Europe - annual review

This review provides in-depth medium to long-term analysis of various employment and social issues, such as:

  • long-term unemployment,
  • mobility,
  • people and skills,
  • modernising social protection systems

It is a basis for policies developed under the 'inclusive growth' strand of the Europe 2020 strategy. It replaces earlier publications on the Social Situation in the EU and Employment in Europe report.

Labour Market and Wage Developments in Europe - annual review

This report analyses the labour market from a macroeconomic perspective. It provides an analysis of recent employment and wage developments, looking at the euro area and the EU as a whole in comparison with its global trading partners. Each edition includes a thematic chapter that deepens the macro-economic analysis of a relevant issue.

A section is devoted to policy trends and recent labour market measures enacted by EU countries, based on the LABREF database. The report also describes the labour market recommendations addressed to each member state in the context of the European Semester.

EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review

This quarterly provides a review of recent social and labour market developments in the EU. It looks at short-term changes in GDP and employment trends, e.g. employment and unemployment rates, long-term unemployment, youth unemployment, labour demand, productivity, changes in gross disposable household income and financial distress. It occasionally looks at specific market groups (women, young people). It provides information on the EU as a whole, the euro area, and each member state.

Analytical web notes – occasional

These occasional analytical web notes provide a special focus on a particular subject. They include descriptive analysis of recently published data, including data from the EU-LFS or the EU-SILC surveys or other sources (e.g. the Labour Market Policy statistics database).

Working papers

Analytical working papers examine various aspects of employment and social policy in detail and are the basis for priority policy programmes, e.g. the Europe 2020 process.

They provide detailed analytical background information for long-term challenges and are published online.

Monthly Labour Market Fact Sheet

The Monthly Labour Market Fact Sheet (published until December 2012) provided the latest available data on the situation in the EU labour market. It now forms part of the EU Employment and Social Situation quarterly review.
