The chart below shows how the share of specific flexible labour market indicators developed from 2008 to 2018. It shows the share of all workers responding that they work part-time rather than full-time (generally those usually working 30 hours or less per week).

In light of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union on 31 January 2020, it should be noted that data published on the Eurofound website may include the 28 EU Member States, as the UK was covered in earlier research. This will be progressively amended to reflect the current composition of the 27 EU Member States.
