Note that after this event the weightings in the EWCS dataset have been adjusted. These changes, which do not affect the results, are now reflected in the presentations.
The pan-European survey covers more than 43,000 face-to-face interviews with workers in 35 European countries. It maps changes in work over time and provides the first comprehensive image of job quality in Europe since the Great Recession. Its aim is to help policymakers improve working conditions and share evidence on people's everyday scenarios at work.
