This dataset shows the employment rate in the EU regions in 2013.
The 2008 crisis has tended to widen disparities in employment rates and in 2013, rates were 11 percentage points higher in more developed regions than in less developed ones (72% and 61%). Under the Europe 2020 strategy, Member States have set national targets for the employment rate which are broadly consistent with the 75% overall target being achieved by 2020. These vary from 62.9% in Malta to 80% in Denmark and Sweden.
% of population aged 20-64. EU-28 = 68.3.
