Around 559 million persons were employed in the second quarter of 2017, 26 million more than in the second quarter of 2008.

Compared to the first quarter of 2017, the euro area employment rate rose by 0.3 percentage point (to 66.2%), with the highest quarterly increases observed in Greece(up 0.8 percentage point, to 53.6%), Portugal (up 0.6 percentage point, to 67.3%), Spain (up 0.6 percentage point, to 61.0%) and Slovenia (up 0.5 percentage point, to 68.7%); by contrast, the employment rate fell by 0.7 percentage point, to 73.0%, in Estonia.

 Employment rates also increased in the United Kingdom (by 0.3 percentage point, to 74.2%), Japan (by 0.2 percentage point, to 75.2%), the United States (by 0.2 percentage point, to 70.0%), and marginally in Korea (to 66.6%). Employment rates were stable in Canada (at 73.3%) and Turkey (at 50.9%) but decreased by 0.3 percentage point in Mexico (to 61.1%) and by 0.5 percentage point in New Zealand (to 76.2%).

The higher OECD area employment level since the second quarter of 2008 reflects employment gains in services as employment still remains below pre-crisis levels in industry and in agriculture. As a result, the service sector's share (73.3%) of OECD employment was 2.6 percentage points higher than in the second quarter of 2008, while that for agriculture (4.6%) and industry (22.1%) were, respectively, 0.4 and 2.1 percentage points lower. The decrease in the share of employment in industry was especially pronounced in southern European countries, with declines of 4.0 percentage points or more in GreeceItalySpain and Portugal.
