HOURLY LABOUR COSTS [updated 27 March 2015]

Data extracted in March 2015. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.

This article provides recent statistics on hourly labour costs in the European Union (EU).

In 2014, average hourly labour costs were estimated at EUR 24.6 in the EU-28 and at EUR 29.2 in the euro area (EA-18). However, this average masks significant gaps between EU Member States, with hourly labour costs ranging between EUR 3.8 and EUR 40.3.

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.
