Fifth European Working Conditions Survey

Overview report
Work plays a significant role in the lives of people, companies and society at large. Since its inception, the European Union has paid considerable attention to work, and improving working conditions is one of its key policy goals. The European Working Conditions Survey series (the ‘EWCS') aims to: Measure working conditions across European countries on a harmonised basis; analyse relationships between different aspects of working conditions; identify groups at risks and issues of concern, as well as areas of progress; monitor trends over time; and contribute to European policy development, in particular on quality of work and employment issues. At the time the fifth edition of the survey was carried out, about 216 million people were employed in the EU27 main reference area of the survey. A total of 44,000 workers from 34 European countries were interviewed in 2010 on their working and employment conditions.
