Fifth European Working Conditions survey - 2010
The fifth iteration of the survey covered issues of:
- precarious employment,
- leadership styles,
- worker participation,
- general job context,
as well as
- working time,
- work organisation,
- work-related health risks,
- cognitive and psychosocial factors,
- work-life balance, and
- access to training.
A number of questions were included to the questionnaire to capture the impact of the economic downturn on working conditions.
Almost 44,000 workers were interviewed, covering 34 countries – EU27, Norway, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Albania, Montenegro and Kosovo – making this wave the most comprehensive one so far, in terms of geographical coverage.
The fifth EWCS was implemented by Gallup Europe, who worked within a strong quality assurance framework, to ensure the highest possible standards in all data collection and editing processes.
