Labour market

The labour marktet is constantly changing. Young people find their first job, older employees retire. Some employees lose their job and look for a new one, others start their own business or start working freelance. And all employers and employees have to adapt to technological progress and globalisation.

CPB research into the labour market focuses on taxes, wages and social security, labour market flexibility, the labour market for older employees and forecasts on how the Dutch labour market will develop in the short, and also the longer term.
