Dernière mise à jour le :03/09/2020


A labour market area is a geographical area within which most of the labour force lives and works.

The division into labour market area provides a breakdown of the territory adapted to local studies on employment. It serves as a reference for the dissemination of localized unemployment rates and employment estimates. This zoning is defined at once for metropolitan France and french overseas department.

The updated cutting is based on the flows of movement from residence to work of active persons observed during the 2016 census. The algorithm used is that recommended by Eurostat, LabourMarketAreas, available in open source. The list of the municipalities is the one datum by the Geographical Official Code (COG).
