The European Jobs Monitor 2016 looks at 2011 Q2–2015 Q2 employment shifts at Member State and aggregate EU level. A ‘jobs-based’ approach is used to describe employment shifts quantitatively (how many jobs were created or destroyed) and qualitatively (what kinds of jobs). It also introduces a new set of indicators on the task content, methods and tools used at work. Derived from international databases on work and occupations, these indicators give a detailed account of what Europeans do at work and how they do it. They also provide valuable new insights on the structural differences and recent evolution of European labour markets, as well as a better understanding of labour input in the production process and the changing nature of skills required. An annex documents the Methodology of the construction of task indices for the European Jobs Monitor (767KB PDF). An executive summary is available - see Related content.
For researchers interested in using the set of indicators on task content, methods and tools at work developed for and described in this report, the following compressed folder (902KB ZIP) is made available.
