Socio-Economic Monitoring 2022: labour market and origin
The new 2022 edition of the Socio-Economic Monitoring shows that people of foreign origin still have more difficulties on the labour market in Belgium.
The situation of people of foreign origin on the Belgian labour market has improved. But progress is very slow, and the gap between people of Belgian and foreign origin remains large. And the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been more important on people of foreign origin.
What do you find in the Socio-Economic Monitoring?
The Socio-Economic Monitoring maps the labour market according to origin and migration history. It is the result of a two-year cooperation between Unia and the FPS Employment, Labour and Social Dialogue. The report is based on statistical data from the Datawarehouse Labour Market and Social Protection and the Crossroads Bank Social Protection. We can compare the data with the previous Socio-Economic Monitoring reports published in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019.
New in the fifth edition are:
- The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic
- Student work
- Grade repetition
- Posted workers
