EFTA Performance in Light of the Europe 2020 Strategy

Published 03-10-2012
The EFTA States have the highest employment rate in Europe and the lowest share of people at risk of poverty and social exclusion. The EFTA countries are also among the countries in Europe with the highest level of tertiary educational attainment.

These are some of the results presented in a recent Eurostat publication on the Europe 2020 Strategy of the European Union. The objectives of the strategy are monitored on the basis of headline indicators, which show the performance of EU Member States but also feature data of EFTA States.

For more details see the Publication details. Liechtenstein data are not available in this study.
