DEFINITION OF THE INDICATOR AND METHODOLOGICAL EXPLANATIONS

The employment rate is calculated by dividing the number of persons aged 20–64 in employment by the total population of the same age group. The indicator is based on the EU Labour Force Survey. The survey covers the entire population living in private households and excludes those in collective households such as boarding houses, halls of residence and hospitals. Employed population consists of those persons who during the reference week did any work for pay or profit for at least one hour, or were not working but had jobs from which they were temporarily absent.

The indicator is a Europe 2020 headline indicator and an impact indicator for Strategic Plan 2016–2020 referring to the 10 European Commission priorities.
