Revising the EU material deprivation variables
Luxemburgo: Oficina de Publicaciones de la Unión Europe, 2017
In March 2017, the European Union (EU) adopted a new indicator of “material and social deprivation”. This measure was developed by Guio et al (2012) and covers the entire population of the 28 EU Member States. It includes 13 deprivation items and replaces the 9-item “standard” material deprivation index adopted in 2009, by the then 27 EU countries and the European Commission, to monitor progress in the fight against poverty and social exclusion at national and EU level. Drawing on the methodology developed in the context of the 1999 “Poverty and Social Exclusion in the UK Survey”, Guio, Gordon and Marlier (2012) proposed an analytical framework for producing a suitable, valid, reliable and additive deprivation measure for the EU. Their recommendations were based on analyses of the 2009 EU-SILC material deprivation module. This report extends these analyses using the 2014 EU-SILC data and demonstrates that the composition of the new material and social deprivation indicator remains optimal over a five year period of considerable socio-economic change.

CoverHow does attrition affect estimates of persistent poverty rates? The case of European Union statistics on income and living conditions (EU-SILC)

Among the primary EU indicators of social inclusion is the persistent at risk of poverty rate, defined as the proportion of persons in a country who are at risk of income poverty in the current year and who were at risk of income poverty in at least two of the preceding three years. Evidence about poverty persistence is an important complement to information about poverty prevalence at a point in time. Estimates of persistent at risk of poverty rates are derived from the longitudinal component of EU SILC in which the fortunes of individuals are tracked over four consecutive years, in principle. In practice, not all of the individuals present in the first sample year provide four years of income data: there is attrition and estimates of persistent at risk of poverty measure may therefore not be reliable. Rates of attrition from the four-year EU-SILC samples used to calculate persistent poverty rates vary substantially across Member States, and there is also substantial cross-national diversity in the characteristics of individuals lost to follow-up. This working paper documents such patterns in detail and provides evidence that application of longitudinal weights does not fully account for the effects of attrition, and that different assumptions about the poverty status of attritors lead to wide bounds for estimates of persistent poverty rates for most Member States.

CoverEmployment and Social Development in Europe 2016
Luxembourg: OPOCE,2016

The annual review of Employment and Social Developments in Europe (ESDE) provides analytical support for EU and national policy actions in pursuit of the Europe 2020 employment and social objectives. It considers the latest available data and provides analysis of key employment and social developments and challenges in the EU and its Member States. 
It aims to contribute to the European Semester and new policy initiatives such as the New Skills Agenda, the European Agenda for the Collaborative Economy, the New Start for Social Dialogue, the Action Plan on the Integration of Third-Country Nationals and the development of a European Pillar of Social Rights.

Los resultados que arroja el último estudio anual sobre la Evolución Social y del Empleo en Europa (ESDE), que se publica hoy, son alentadores. Se han creado alrededor de tres millones de puestos de trabajo, y el aumento del empleo ha hecho retroceder a la pobreza. No obstante, las cifras de desempleo siguen siendo altas y presentan grandes disparidades entre los Estados miembros. Los mercados laborales y la sociedad tienen que adaptarse a las nuevas formas de trabajo.

Los principales temas que aborda el estudio ESDE de este año son el empleo como instrumento de lucha contra la pobreza, la digitalización y los cambios en el mundo laboral, el papel del diálogo social, las disparidades entre los distintos Estados miembros y la integración de los refugiados en el mercado de trabajo.
