People who have left one job but are certain to begin their new job within a relatively short period of time.
It exists when broad structural changes are taking place in an economy and certain job categories or skills are eliminated from labor markets. These changes may be the result of technological change, changes in tastes or preferences for particular goods, or changes in any barriers to trade.
It occurs when individuals suffer job losses due to changes in the economic cycle (recession).
Demand for certain workers falls at certain times of the year (e.g. ski instructor in the summer or bartender by the seaside in winter)
(Economically Active Population Survey)
It´s a sampling-based investigation that is performed every three months. It´s main goal is to reveal the main characteristics of the population with regard to the labour market.
The sample contains 65,000 families per quarter and approximately 180,000 persons, that is, 0.4% of the population. The EAPS follows the ILO methodology.

economy at a point within its PPF
the government should reduce the ability of unions to negotiate higher wages. The minimum wage should be reduced, or even abolished.
Unemployment is caused by trade unions and government minimum wages interfering with the labour market.
As an economy moves into a period of slower growth, demand tends to fall as consumers spend less. This is likely to lead to a fall in the demand for labour, as firms cut back on production.
Governments should lower unemployment benefits to encourage unemployed workers to take the jobs that are available rather than allow them the chance to wait for a better one to come along.
Improving the flow of information from potencial employers to people looking for jobs.
Encouraging people to take different jobs in their "off season".
Spending on adult retraining programmes to help people acquire the necessary skills to match available jobs.
Education system that trains people to me more occupationally flexible.
Encouraging people to move to areas where where jobs exist.
Deregulation labour market (labour market flexibility): reducing or removing the legislation that businesses must follow in their hiring, firing, and employment practices.
The government can intervene to bring about an increase in demand through the use of fiscal (public spending) or monetary (interest rates) policies.
