Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, employment increased by 1.6% in the euro area and by 1.5% in the EU28 in the second quarter of 2017 (after +1.6% and +1.5% respectively in the first quarter of 2017). Eurostat estimates that, in the second quarter of 2017, 235.4 million men and women were employed in the EU28, of which 155.6 million were in the euro area. These are the highest levels ever recorded in both areas. These figures are seasonally adjusted.
