    Portfolio of EU social indicators for the monitoring of progress towards the EU objectives for social protection and social Inclusion

    This publication reflects the 2015 update of the portfolio of EU social indicators as developed by the Social Protection Committee and especially its Indicators Sub-Group. The indicators aim at monitoring progress towards the EU objectives for social protection and social inclusion. In addition to a list of overarching indicators, four sets of indicators focus on specific topics: social inclusion, pensions, healthcare and long-term care, and child poverty and wellbeing. The lists are continuously being improved as statistics, data collection and policy needs evolve. The indicators are an essential tool to assess the social challenges facing EU countries, identity social trends to watch and support Member States reporting on social policies.

    2014 Social Protection Performance Monitor (SPPM) dashboard results

    This short summary report presents an overview of recent developments in the social situation in EU Member States, based on the results from the latest edition of the Social Protection Performance Monitor (SPPM). It is produced by the Social Protection Committee as part of its work of monitoring social situations in the Member States. The 2014 dashboard results paint a picture of little improvement in the overall social situation in the EU, with ongoing disparities across Member States and, for some, a worsening situation. Unemployment, poverty and social exclusion again stand out as areas of concern, despite early signs of economic recovery.
