National action plans for employment and indicators for monitoring employment at the European level
How does one implement an EC-wide employment policy? How does one assess such a policy? What sort of issues need to be considered in order to provide an accurate overview of this topic? These were the questions facing the EU in relation to employment in the fifteen Member States of the European Union. To answer them, it developed a wide-ranging system of indicators to cover all aspects of the topic, as we shall see below. In addition to indicators of global employment, unemployment and economic performance, there are performance indicators relating on the one hand to the means employed and on the other hand to the results obtained. This system is not yet complete, and it is still in the process of being extended and refined, in particular with regard to the notion of quality of employment.
