‘Have your say’: EU review of labour market statistics


The European Commission is working on a proposal to revise the European labour market statistics on businesses (LMB), aimed at making statistics more up-to-date and more comparable across countries, improving coverage of the economy and ensuring the collection of data on the annual unadjusted gender pay gap.

In this context, the Commission is carrying out a public consultation to gather input from stakeholders. Between February 09, 2022 and May 04, 2022, statistics users and producers, institutional as well as individual data providers are invited to participate.

The consultation will focus on understanding to what extent existing labour market statistics on businesses continue to efficiently and proportionately provide the evidence needed to help in the decision-making process for EU policies, as well as assessing the most critical gaps, including new data needs and what is the potential for simplification.

The public consultation covers both backwards-looking evaluation of existing EU legislation, as well as forward-looking modernisation options.
