Labour market policy expenditure fell by more than 14% in real terms between 2005 and 2008 Issue number 66/2010

EUROSTAT  Statistics in focus

Population and social conditions


The statistics shown are based on Eurostat's LMP database, which collects information on labour market interventions from administrative sources in all of the EU-27 Member States and Norway. The timeliness of data depends on national accounting procedures and in some cases there is a significant delay before the annual data are finalised, particularly those relating to expenditure. As a result, data for all countries are only available 18-20 months after the reference period. It is anticipated that 2009 data will be published in June 2011. LMP data are routinely used for monitoring of the European Employment Strategy and, in particular, the efforts of each country to support the unemployed through active and passive labour market policies.
