The dispersion of regional (NUTS level 2) employment rates of the age group 15-64 shows the regional differences in employment.

The employment rate of the age group 15-64 represents employed persons aged 15-64 as a percentage of the population of the same age group.

The dispersion of regional employment rates is zero when the employment rates in all regions are identical, and it will rise if there is an increase in the differences between employment rates among regions.

Note that there is no data available for Estonia, Ireland, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta or Slovenia.

The data source is the Eurostat indicators website.
