RESTRUCTURING EVENTS DATABASE
The restructuring events database contains factsheets with data on large-scale restructuring events reported in the principal national media in each EU member state. It has been in existence since 2002.
The database is updated daily and grows at a rate of approximately 20-30 new entries a week. To date, more than 16,000 restructuring events have been recorded.
In order to be included in the database, an individual case of restructuring must involve the announced loss or creation of at least 100 jobs, or employment effects affecting at least 10% of a workforce of more than 250 people.
It is also possible to compile aggregate data based on the information available in the database on the descriptive statistics page and to compare the scale of announced job reductions and creation per country, sector or type of restructuring.
- Access the detail of the fact sheet by selecting the name of a company.
- Sort the restructuring cases by selecting a column.
DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS of CASES WITHIN THE RESTRUCTURING EVENTS DATABASE
Breakdown of the number of planned job reductions, in relation to the following three variables:
(1) Type of restructuring (2) Sector (3) Country
It is also possible to restrict the analysis to a specific timeframe on the basis of the announcement date. The compilation of results is shown in the form of a cross-tabulation table and a bar chart.
