Public administration: Working conditions and job quality
This report gives an overview of working conditions, job quality, workers’ health and job sustainability in the public administration sector (NACE 84). The findings are 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 sector includes all public administration activities, including defence, provision of services to the community as a whole (such as public order and fire safety activities) and administration of compulsory social security. The fifth EWCS contains responses from 2,256 workers in this sector.
