- Changes in the employment rate of people aged 55+ in the European Union countries in 2004-2017 (1-7)
Demographic change is one of the megatrends that affects many areas of socio-economic life in Europe, including the labor market. While in every EU member state the share of people aged 55+ increases, the rate of professional activity and employment decreases with age. One of the features that affect the employment level of this age group alongside gender is the level of education. Taking into account the above premises, the aim of the article is to present spatial diversity of the employment level of people aged 55-64 in EU member states in 2004-2017 and their employment projection in the perspective of 2070. The analysis covers the years 2004-2017, and its main source is data obtained from the study of the eco-natural activity of the population, conducted by Eurostat.
