  3. Abstract:

    The major concerns of all the countries of the European Union, found both in the Lisbon Strategy and in the Europe 2020 Strategy, are sustainable economic development, research, innovation and education, increasing the share of people employed and developing a inclusive work, creating jobs for inactive, hard-working or socially vulnerable people. As all European countries face a declining birth rate, the aging of the population, with increasing imbalances between the employed population and the one benefiting from the support of the social systems, they raise the question of integrating into the labor market the largest percentage of the population capable of securing an income by providing a useful work for society by creating all the conditions for achieving this goal. Although Romania does not currently face a serious unemployment problem (the unemployment rate in 2016 at national level was 5.9% compared to the European average of 8.6%), the rate of activity and the employment rate of the working age population registered in our country continues to be among the lowest in Europe and almost 4 percentage points of the national target set for the achievement of the Europe 2020 targets. This paper analyzes the main indicators of the labor market (active population, occupied population, unemployment) in Bucharest-Ilfov Region level.
