Labour Market Accounts (LMA)

Labour Market Accounts (LMA) help us understand labour market dynamics. These statistics provide information regarding the transition from employment, unemployment and inactivity. In this sense, the LMA serve as a complement to Employment Statistics (ES) and Unemployment Statistics (ILO-based). The LMA also show migration flows as well as births and deaths. They create a link between labour market statistics and population statistics.
