This report describes the problems with measuring working time coherently across countries in the European Labour Force Survey, with a special focus on actual working time in the reference week of the survey. The first part of the report gives a brief overview of the results for all EU member states, plus Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Turkey. More in-depth case studies are provided for Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
As working time is a key component of labour market statistics, Eurostat commissioned a task force to solve these comparability and measurement problems. The recommend improvements from the task force are also presented here. [+]
In this work we present a framework developed for the European Big Data Hackathon 2017. This framework is divided in two parts: an exploration part, which is aimed to better understand the EU global labour market and to capture its heterogeneity; and an inferential part, whose goal is to establish associations between characteristics of the EU labour market and indicators designed to capture important aspects of the labour market (i.e. Skills mismatch, Mobility and Emigration). For the exploration part, we developed the concept of Labour Market Attractiveness, which consists of a combination of socio-economic and demographic variables from Eurostat datasets. Using data mining techniques, such as social networks and clustering analysis, we showed that this combined set consistently captured the country-level heterogeneity in the EU, forming well-defined clusters. For the inferential part, we used model selection analysis and weighted network correlation analyses to establish associations between the characteristics of the EU labour market and the labour market indicators. We argue that the combination of both exploration and inferential parts can disentangle the complex dynamics of the EU labour market and help setting effective policies to tackle typical problems of a fast-changing global labour market environment.

Manual sobre la compilación de estadísticas sobre actividades económicas ilegales en cuentas nacionales y balanza de pagosen Estadisticas
The present Handbook represents the first comprehensive overview of conceptual and practical issues related the compilation of statistics on illegal economic activities (IEAs) in national accounts (NA) and balance of payments (BOP).
Estimating the extent or the value of IEAs is clearly problematic because a direct observation is often out of question. However, statistical institutions and data users have increasingly recognised the need for comprehensive, reliable and internationally available information on IEAs in NA and BOP. Therefore, the purpose of this Handbook is to provide a common definition of IEAs and guidance for collecting and compiling IEA statistics, in a consistent and coordinated way. The aim is also to contribute to improved collection and compilation and to a greater understanding of IEA transactions.
This Handbook is the result of the joint work of the members of the Task Force on the Recording of IEAs in NA and BOP, consisting of experts from the European Commission, European national statistical institutes and central banks, as well as UNODC, ECB, OECD and European Parliament - European Parliamentary Research Service.
