The employment rate is the key indicator of employment developments and the conditions for meeting public expenditure. However, with the ageing of the population, a rise in the employment rate (i.e. the ratio of employed persons to the 15–64-year-old population) no longer automatically implies an increase in the number of employed, as the rise may reflect a reduction in the working-age population as well as an increase in the number of employed persons.
