City Statistics: Part-time employment

Part-time employment can have both positive and negative consequences. Additional time can be used for a better work-life balance and personal fulfilment and leisure. These are positive consequences. Negative consequences are a reduced income, fewer opportunities for promotion, limited possibilities for continuing education and training, as well as lower contributions to occupational pension funds. Part-time employment is also important for gender equality.

Data from the RS from reference year t are surveyed at 31 December of year t-1 in order to comply with Eurostat directives (see methodology, in French or German only).
