EU Employment and Social Situation Quarterly Review – June 2014

Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2014 - ISBN 978-92-79-38464-6 - ISSN 1977-8317 - doi: 10.2767/26015




Among recent positive signs, the Quarterly Review points out that jobs are being created in the private sector, mainly in services, and unemployment continues to fall, even if moderately. However, current employment levels (with about 224 million employed persons) are still below their pre-crisis level (of about 230 million employed persons in mid-2008) and unemployment rates remain close to historically high levels (10.4 % in April 2014, following a peak rate of 10.9% observed throughout the first half of 2013).
