    Eurofound publishes comparative research on undeclared work in Europe during the recession: Europe is winning the war on undeclared work A wide range of policy approaches and measures introduced in all EU Member States over the past five years have had a significant impact on preventing businesses and people from engaging in undeclared work, new research from Eurofound has found.  It recorded an incremental decline in the size of the undeclared economy from the equivalent of 22.3% of GDP in 2003 to 18.4% by 2012, although with big differences between countries. Eurofound launches today a comprehensive package of research comparing approaches and measures on how EU Member States, Croatia and four EU candidate countries, have tackled undeclared work since the onset of the economic recession in 2008, at a hearing in the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in Brussels, Belgium.
