Labour Force Survey 2013
In the EU28, 10 million part-timers are underemployed…
and 11 million persons considered as a potential additional labour force
The EU28 population aged 15 to 74 can be classified into three groups: in 2013, these were 216.4 million persons
in employment, 26.2 million unemployed and 137.2 million economically inactive. Among those in employment,
43.7 million were part-time workers, of which 9.9 million (23% of part-time workers) are underemployed1
they wished to work more hours and were available to do so.
Among the economically inactive population (those persons neither employed nor unemployed), there were 9.3
million persons aged 15 to 74 available to work, but not seeking2
and 2.2 million seeking work, but not available3
the EU28 in 2013. While not part of the economically active population, both groups have a certain attachment to
the labour market and could be considered as a potential additional labour force of 11.5 million persons, equivalent
to 4.7% of the labour force4
