The EU Unemployment Infographic

29 Nov 2011


 

Europe's financial and sovereign debt troubles are extremely serious but tackling its unemployment problems must remain a top priority for all of its policymakers, not just those in hard-hit 'peripheral' states. The data in our latest infographic is drawn from Eurostat, the official statistics body of the European Union, which publishes unemployment figures on a regular basis.

The infographic explores the differing rates of unemployment across member states, gender and age. It also takes a broader view, looking at changes in job participation rates and long-term unemployment over time. 

On the 30th Nov 2011, Eurostat published its latest 'Euroindicator' on unemployment, showing further increases in the EU27 joblessness rate from 9.7% to 9.8% and in the euro area rate from 10.2% to 10.3%. Read here.

This content forms part of the E View project, which is part-funded by DG Communication of the European Parliament.

I'd like to say to Tony in Dublin, if a nurse fell in love with a Guard she'd have to say "oh I cant be with you or else I lose my job". Pathetic if u ask me

the changes to the long term sickness benefit .just leave claiments in the air all it seems to be is a way of taking money from those who can least afford it . you may appeal a judgement but though you already have been assest you now get means tested .the govenment have done themselves no good with this tinkering with the pensions .the silent majority will remember this at the next election they are just storing up trouble for themselves .remember all of us will be sick or old one day

I have to agree with Alan . Young people "seeking for work " and being too cool to do it for lower wages to start with or actually unable do anything properly Shame Injury talk

In the UK the publicly released jobless figures are artificially low owing to the fact that they do not include unemployed workers over 60. Moreover, the method of calculating unemployment figures has chaged several times in the last 50 years in a manner that makes the jobless total look smaller than it would be had the method of calculation remained the same. We need honest unemployment figures, not cynically massaged ones. Only then will we have a correct understanding of the problem.

Due to the lowering of education standards, many UK kids are leaving school unable to read, write or spell properly and have minimal numeracy. Some of these young people are basically unemployable.
