The MEDSTATS IV’s publication reviews and discusses the details of both the implementation and the labour force and employment surveys in the ENP-South countries. This gives a comparable regional picture of the achievements in this very sensitive area.
The Compendium has been built on the results of the sector reviews recently made in Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Tunisia as well as on other material provided by the countries.
The work done by these countries helps to explore the feasibility of more harmonisation between the national surveys, in general terms and with respect to the introduction of rotating ad hoc modules, as it successfully occurs in the experience of the EU LFS.
The MEDSTAT IV project provides expertise and technical support to promote the harmonisation of statistics in line with EU and international standards in 6 domains: business register and business, trade and balance of payments, energy, labour market, migration and transport. It follows on the previous phase implemented over the period 2010-2013.
