Registered Employment: August 2022
Administrative data provided by Jobsplus show that, over a period of one year, the labour supply (excluding part-timers) increased by 6.0 per cent, reaching 256,063 (see methodological note 5). This was mainly attributed to a year-on-year increase in the full-time registered employment (14,956) and a decrease in registered unemployment (520) (Table 1).
Registered full-time employment
During August 2022, accommodation and food services activities (NACE 55-56, 2,650) and administrative and support service activities (NACE 77-82, 2,288) contributed mostly to the increase in employment, when compared to August 2021 (Table 1). Registered full-time employment in the private sector went up by 14,765 persons to 203,756. Public sector full-time employment increased by 191 persons to 51,385 (Table 2).
The number of persons registered as full-time self-employed rose by 609 when compared to August 2021, while the number of persons registered as employees increased by 14,347.
