Facts & Figures
Welcome into the interactive socio-economic indicators websiteThrough their work, LISER researchers have identified different socioeconomic phenomena, which are relevant to the Grand Duchy, such as ageing of the working population and the material deprivation or the real estate prices. While not exhaustive, the new page is designed to provide an overview of the economic, social, and geographical dimensions of the country with a temporal and/or spatial scope thanks to dynamic and/or interactive graphics.
Beyond the numbers, this page also aims to guide the users in interpreting these indicators. Thus, an indicators page may include supporting texts which will allow for a better understanding of the facts and of the socio-political context for scientists as well as the general public. For users wishing further information on an indicator or research theme, every indicator will be linked to the publications (where possible) or to other relevant themes.
On this page, you will find all the indicators classified under the three research departments of LISER (left) as well as all the new/updates indicators (Right).
Employment of older workers well below the European average
In Luxembourg, in 2018, 40.5% of the people aged between 55 and 64 were still working. In this respect, the Grand Duchy is lagging behind the great majority of other EU countries.
More older workers in companies
The share of workers aged 50 and over has more than doubled over the past 25 years (11% in 1994 compared to 25.5% in 2019). This phenomenon affects all companies, whatever their size.
Best employment sectors for the over-fifties
In 2019, the sectors of real estate, of manufacturing, of construction and of transportation were the sectors employing the largest number of older workers in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
