Annual employment growth (%)

Use Your Default Country

Annualized growth of permanent full-time workers expressed as a percentage. Annual employment growth is the change in full-time employment reported in the current fiscal year from a previous period. For most countries the difference between the two fiscal year periods is two years. However, for some countries the interval is three years. Hence, an annualized measure is used. The formula is (1/t)*(l1-l2)/[(l1+l2)/2] where t is the number of years between the current and previous periods.
