14. Long-term unemployment share in the EU - Chart 14
This graph displays long-term unemployment share in European countries. Data refer to the share of the employed persons since 12 months or more in the total number of unemployed.
After seven years from the beginning of the economic crisis in Europe, we observe that the weight of long-term unemployment varies significantly across the member states.
Looking at AIRMULP countries, we see that in 2014 the long-term unemployment share ranges from less than 20% in Sweden to more than 60% in Italy. Data show that also in Spain the incidence of long-term unemployment is higher than the EU-28 average, while in France and Poland it is slightly below it.
