Statistical bulletin. Employment and unemployment. Employment Trends in 1982 in the European Community. 1983.3
The level of employment in the European Community has fallen for the second year in succession. As a result of a reduction of 1,2 million in relation to 1981, the occupied population fell back to 108 million in 1982, a figure which is very close to that recorded in 1970. Since that date however, the number of persons presenting themselves as available for work has risen continually, from 110 million in 1970 to 118 million in 1982. Finally, 10 million people on average were unsuccessfully seeking employment in 1982 in the European Community.
