HOURLY LABOUR COSTS
Data from March 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
In 2013 average hourly labour costs were estimated at EUR 23.7 in the EU-28 and at EUR 28.4 in the euro area (EA-17). However, this average masks significant differences between EU Member States, with hourly labour costs ranging between EUR 3.7 and EUR 40.1.
When comparing labour cost estimates in euro over time, it should be noted that data for those Member States outside the euro area are influenced by exchange rate movements.
