European Working Conditions Survey 2020

Fieldwork for EWCS 2020 halted due to COVID-19

On 3 February 2020, Eurofound began the fieldwork for the newest edition of its landmark European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS). However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Agency was forced to terminate initial fieldwork through face-to-face interviewing after only seven weeks. Eurofound will make some supporting documentation available in due course, such as methodological reports and the survey questionnaire.

From March to July 2021, Eurofound will carry out a new round of fieldwork for the EWCS, using computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) for the first time.
