Network of experts on intra-EU mobility – social security coordination and free movement of workers
Lot 2: Statistics and compilation of national data
Client: DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion
Intra-EU mobility can raise the overall EU GDP and boost overall productivity if it improves labour allocation by better matching workers’ skills to job vacancies. Nonetheless, a number of media throughout Europe have reported criticism to the citizens’ right to free movement.
Quantifying the phenomenon of free movement will allow an understanding of the scale of the issue and will help to better target EU action.
Milieu has been in charge of assisting the Commission with the collection and analysis (qualitative and quantitative) of data sources on EU citizens residing and/or working in other EU Member States by:
1. annual updates to a Compendium of data sources;
2. preparation of an annual report on national data sources.
The other partners provide the European Commission with national statistics and data on the functioning of social security coordination systems, including fraud and error.
