Erratum on labour force data

Today, Eurostat published new data on employment in the EU. Not a pretty sight. But according to the press release 2012 data were revised:

The Latvian statistical office has revised the employment data from the first quarter of 2011, based on the results of the latest census. For this reason 2011 data are currently not comparable with data of earlier years, and annual growth rates are therefore only published in this release from the first quarter of 2012. The Lithuanian statistical office has also revised the employment data from the first quarter of 2012, based on the results of the latest census. For this reason 2012 data are currently not comparable with data of earlier years, and therefore annual growth rates for 2012, as well as the quarterly growth rate for the first quarter of 2012, are not published.

This means that the very large decrease in Latvian employment shown in this blog is probably too large, as the Eurostat database does not yet contain new data I can’t say more about this.
