Statistical publications

The traditional regular publication of detailed results in paper format was discontinued after 2002, giving way to online publications.

Irregularly, publications appear in print containing EU-LFS data, for instance European Social Statistics – 2013 edition.

Europe 2020 and policy making indicators

One of the headline targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy is linked to employment and data used to monitor this target comes from the EU Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS). As part of the Europe 2020 Strategy, the EU Member States have set national targets for the employment rate in 2020. A short electronic publication showing how EU Member States are progressing towards the target and offering some insight into these developments is available through Statistics Explained.

Additional to the Europe 2020 Strategy, the European Commission (EC) bases other EU policy indicators on the EU Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) results: European Pillar of Social Rights, European and national indicators / Principal European Economic Indicators (PEEIs), Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure (MIP) and Sustainable Development Indicators (SDI).

For more information and a complete list of indicators, including Europe 2020, please see: EU policy indicators.
