Second EUKLEMS Consortium meeting Helsinki, June, 2005 The EUKLEMS project is funded by the European Commission, Research DG as part of the 6th Framework Programme, Priority 8, "Policy Support and Anticipating Scientific and Technological Needs".
Labour SOURCES: FRANCE Employment NA use numerous sources: NSO, Ministry of Labour (the ACEMO survey from the DARES), social security forms, unemployment benefits office, census, etc.. Total employment includes wage-earners, self-employed people, occupying a job in the economic territory. Total employment assessed in numbers engaged for each sector of activity. Then conversion in full-time equivalent thanks to ACEMO and LFS (total hours worked divided by average hours worked by full-time workers in the economic territory).
(Employment continued) Sector employment: breakdown according to the business surveys except for employment in the financial sector (breakdown of employment according to compensation of employees) Agency workers are affected to business services selection and providing of services. People engaged by non profit organisations serving households are estimated by balance. Corrections for illegal work are made (no estimation of illegal jobs but assessment of numbers occupying a current job but not paying taxes)
Hours worked Theoretical work-time (Acemo survey) corrected for holidays, strikes, partial unemployment, sick leave, maternity leave and work injuries (various sources). Sources for over-time deemed unreliable. The volume of hours worked by self-employed people estimated to be equal to self-employed numbers times average annual hours of employees corrected for an over-activity coefficient found in the LFS. PB: the total volume of hours worked not shown after 1998; only hours worked by employees in 16 sectors.
Alternative sources: Labour Force Surveys: education and occupation types, over-activity rate, part-time work in order to calculate full- time equivalents if needed. Social security forms: reliable source for compensation of employees. Use of them anytime we need to harmonise or compute labour quality and apply ratios to NA totals.
