Labour market more dynamic due to coronavirus crisis
Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, publishes for the first time labour market transitions based on the Labour Force Survey. The longitudinal nature of the survey makes it possible to measure the dynamics on the labour market. The data answer questions such as: is someone who is employed at a given time still employed a quarter or a year later, or did he/she become unemployed or inactive?
The labour market was particularly affected by the coronavirus crisis between the first and second quarters of 2020. Between the second and the third quarters of 2020, transitions seem to be back in line with the previous transitions.
