This report presents a broad picture of temporary employment across the EU27 (Croatia is not included). It maps the recent evolution of temporary employment, before and after the economic crisis, using EU Labour Force Survey data for 2001 to 2012. The report calculates the wage gap between temporary and permanent employees using data from the 2010 and 2006 waves of the Structure of Earnings Survey (SES), and makes an innovative empirical analysis of the wage gap within companies. It looks also at labour market transitions of temporary employees into permanent employment and non-employment using data from the EU Statistics on Income and Living Conditions for 2006 to 2012.
