Observatory on employment in the Western Balkans

Aims to enhance the comparative knowledge and evidence on the current employment and labour market trends and short term fluctuations in the region and the governments’ responses to the COVID-19 crisis

Information & Monitoring

All Observatory data were updated on 28 July 2022, to include annual, macro and quarterly employment data from the EU Candidate Countries’ & Potential Candidates’ Economic Quarterly (CCEQ) 2nd Quarter 2022 Technical Paper and LFSs, and monthly data from Western Balkans’ Public Employment Services (PES). Some WB economies had revisions of their earlier LFS methodology/data reporting, thus there were changes in prior Observatory data which are reflected in the latest updates. For any questions, please contact us at esap@rcc.int.
