description:
The European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) is conducted by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (EFILWC), which is an autonomous agency of the European Union (EU), funded from the general budget of the European Commission. The EWCS series began in 1990-1991, and is generally conducted once every five years, although an extra wave was conducted in 2001 to cover the new acceding and candidate EU countries. The survey is based on a questionnaire which is administered face-to-face to a random sample of 'persons in employment' (i.e. employees and the self-employed), representative of the working population in each EU country. The aim of the EWCS is to provide an overview of the state of working conditions in the EU, to identify major issues and changes affecting the workplace and to contribute to a better monitoring of the quality of work and employment in Europe. The number of questions and issues covered in the EWCS has expanded in each subsequent survey, but a core set of key questions has remained unchanged in order to enable the study of trends in working conditions. The coverage of the EWCS over time reflects the evolution of the EU, as more states have joined over time. Hence, in 1991, the survey covered the 12 EU member states of the time (EU12); in 1995, 15 states (EU15); in 2000 the EU15 countries plus Norway; in 2001 the 10 new EU member states plus Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey; and in 2005 the survey included 31 countries including the 27 current EU member states (EU27) plus Croatia, Turkey, Switzerland and Norway in 2005 (though it should be noted that two of the EU27, Romania and Bulgaria, did not fully accede to the EU until 2007).
