The Croatian Employment Service is an institution in charge of generating and disseminating the labour market statistics related to registered unemployment and employment. On our website you can get an insight into monthly or annual series of data, from 1952 until today.
The data are presented in four basic categories:
Registered unemployed persons – persons aged from 15 to 65, fully or partly capable for work, without a job, who are active job seekers, available for work and who meet all criteria set down in provisions of the Act on Employment Mediation and Unemployment Rights (Article 10) and who are registered with the Croatian Employment Service at the end of the reporting month.
New entrants to the register - newly registered unemployed persons who registered and entered the CES unemployment register during the reporting period.
Exits from the register - unemployed persons who left the CES unemployment register during the reporting period. The most important reason for leaving the register is employment on work contract basis or based on some other types of work.
Other reasons for leaving the register are as follows: labour market exits (retirement, starting regular schooling, trainings organized by the CES, etc.), cancelling the registration with the CES and non-compliance with legal regulations.
Reported job vacancies - represent demand for workers reported by employers to the Croatian Employment Service during the reporting month.
Below are some indicators of the labor market on a monthly basis.
