Methods and definitions In order to ensure comparability, data published by Eurostat are based on a harmonised methodology. This may result in small differences between these data and those published nationally. Data are derived from the EU-LFS by exploiting the quarterly overlap of a share of the sample; this overlapping data is weighted to be compatible with stock data derived from the EU-LFS for the initial quarter as well as the final quarter with the exception of inactivity in the initial quarter. Further information on the methodology is available in the Eurostat Statistics Explained article on labour market flow statistics. Employed persons are all persons who worked at least one hour for pay or profit during the reference week or were temporarily absent from such work. Unemployed persons are all persons who were not employed during the reference week, had actively sought work during the past four weeks, and were ready to begin working immediately or within two weeks. The inactive population consists of all persons who are classified neither as employed nor as unemployed. It can include in particular students, pensioners and housewives or -men, for example, provided that they are not working at all and not available or looking for work either; some of these may be of working-age.
Revisions and time table Data in this news release have a provisional nature and can be subject to revisions due to improvements and refinements in the methods used.
