Summary

The project examines various aspects of labour market performance of the EU Member States using data from the European Union Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS). The study focuses particularly on (i) labour supply, (ii) unemployment duration, (iii) labour market transitions, (iv) full-time/part-time employment and temporary/permanent contracts, (v) education, (vi) mobility within the European Union and migration. Furthermore, we analyze similarities and differences between EU Member States with respect to these focus areas.
