Unemployed in EU – 65.7% remained unemployed, 15% found a job

Out of all persons in the European Union (EU) who were unemployed in the fourth quarter 2015, 65.7% (13.0 million persons) remained unemployed in the first quarter 2016, while 15.4% (3.0 million) moved into employment and 18.9% (3.7 million) towards economic inactivity in Q1 2016.

Of all those initially in employment, 96.2% (169.7 million persons) remained in employment, while 1.7% (2.9 million) of those employed in the fourth quarter 2015 were observed to be unemployed in the first quarter 2016, and 2.2% (3.8 million) transitioned into economic inactivity.

Labour market flows show the movements of individuals between employment, unemployment, and economic inactivity. 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.
