This report gives an overview of working conditions, job quality, workers’ health and job sustainability in the other service activities sector (NACE 94 to 96). It is based mostly on the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), which gathers data on working conditions and the quality of work across 34 European countries. Additional information on the structural characteristics of the sector is derived from Eurostat data. The other services activities sector is quite heterogeneous as it encompasses the activities of membership organisations such as trade unions and religious or political organisations (NACE 94), repair of computers and personal and household goods (NACE 95), and other personal service activities, such as hairdressing and dry-cleaning (NACE 96). The fifth EWCS contains responses from 1,235 workers in this sector. Read more information on other sectors.
