The Labour Market Outlook dashboard offers a comprehensive overview of the evolution of key labour market outcomes across EU member states, from 2006 onwards. 

Derived from harmonised EU Labour Force Survey (EU-LFS) data, the dashboard provides valuable insights into the trends and shifts in essential labour market indicators. It displays several traditional labour market metrics like employment and unemployment rates, prevalence of long-term unemployment, along with some “contemporary” measures such as the frequency of working from home or the exposure to generative AI.

Moreover, the dashboard delves beyond aggregate-level information, offering insights into disparities across gender and educational attainment levels.

This dashboard is part of the Future of Work and Inclusive Growth in Europe project at Bruegel, which aims to develop multiple dashboards on labour market topics. It has been produced with the financial support of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.
