Labour

There are several sources of labour market data: the labour force survey, which collects data on the economic activity of the population (unemployment, employment) and the institutional data collections and administrative data, which serve as a source to illustrate, for example, the characteristics of earnings hours worked, average staff number, job vacancies, labor costs, strike events. The statistical domain also includes the calculation of the real wage index and the publication of the minimum wage and the guaranteed minimum wage data.
