Labor market – indicators by counties

first_imgRegional economic inequality in Croatia is visible, among other things, in the labor market, they point out from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, based on the analysis of the labor market by counties.The Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) publishes the registered unemployment rate by counties (due to limited data on the number of employees) only once a year on 31 March. Although this situation is at the beginning of the pre-season when unemployment rates are higher, especially in coastal counties, these data can be used in comparing counties and the dynamics of change in this month compared to the same month in previous years. They show that the registered unemployment rate has a high range among counties.The analysis of available official statistics shows a large difference in unemployment rates between counties – the range from the minimum (City of Zagreb) to the maximum (Virovitica-Podravina County) rate in 2016 was 24,5 percentage points. In all counties, the unemployment rate has been falling for the last two years, and in Krapina-Zagorje, Karlovac, Varaždin and Zadar for the last three years.At the same time, the decline in the rate in all counties was influenced by a larger decline in the number of unemployed, associated with demographic and emigrant trends. At the same time, in none of the counties did the number of employees or pension insured persons increase compared to 2008. At the same time, the counties of Adriatic Croatia came closer to the levels from 2008 than Continental Croatia, mostly Lika-Senj and Zadar. Due to the uneven dynamics in the sphere of unemployment and employment, in all counties in 2016 a smaller number of persons in employment was recorded compared to 2008 (the smallest decrease was recorded in the City of Zagreb, and the largest in Koprivnica-Križevci County). At the same time, only two counties of Continental Croatia (Varaždin and Karlovac) and only one county of Adriatic Croatia (Zadar) in 2016 achieved lower unemployment rates than before the crisis.Side dish: Labor market – indicators by counties Related news: FINALLY FOUND SOLUTION AGAINST LACK OF LABOR IN TOURISM<br />

Michael O’Neill turns to Roy Hodgson in bid to ensure Northern Ireland are ready

first_img So O’Neill plans to speak to Hodgson, who has managed at three tournaments with England and Switzerland and sent O’Neill a message of congratulations. “It’s a new experience for me as a coach, for the players and for the association,” he said. “I’ll pick the brains of people like Roy Hodgson who have been to major tournaments, but maybe I’ll have to do that before the draw because they might not help us if we’re in the same group! “Roy sent me a lovely message complimenting all the players. He’s worked with five of our squad, and he named them and wished them all the best. “There’s a lot to do in terms of preparation and I’ll use the period wisely.” O’Neill is also pondering the possibility of checking in with Ireland’s rugby union team at the ongoing own World Cup. He has already visited them in the past to share information and methods and would be interested in seeing how they operate in the throes of a competition. “In the summer I spent the day with the Irish Rugby World Cup team. I looked at their preparations and how they do things at over Carton House,” he explained. Press Association Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill is hoping to benefit from the experience of England boss Roy Hodgson as he prepares for his country’s first major tournament in 30 years. O’Neill’s side finish their triumphant Euro 2016 campaign in Finland on Sunday night, with top spot in Group F still up for grabs but qualification assured. O’Neill’s assistant Jimmy Nicholl played in the 1982 and 1986 World Cups, but it is new ground for most at the Irish FA. “Maybe that’s something I would consider revisiting now they’re in the World Cup – their preparations and how they go about things. “I told the players earlier the preparation starts now.” Those preparations include the selection process for training camps in France, a process O’Neill did not get involved with personally for fear of tempting fate. Instead he deferred to the IFA’s head of international administration, David Currie. “It’s already under way and has been for quite some time,” said O’Neill. “UEFA ask for your preferred venues in July, so David has already been to see the venues. “I didn’t take any part in that because I didn’t want to get ahead of myself, b ut we have our selected venue and I’ll obviously go and see that as soon as possible.” Having already made history as the first ever Northern Ireland squad to reach a European Championship, O’Neill has set his side the task of adding another feather in their caps. No side has ever qualified having been drawn as a fifth seed but that both Northern Ireland and Iceland could now achieve such a feat. A point in Helsinki would be enough for O’Neill’s men to stay ahead of Romania at the Group F summit, and that means no experimental or sentimental team selections. “It’s been a great trip for us just to see the mood of the players since Thursday night, they’ve been in great form, but there is a focus in us as well,” he said. “We come wanting to win the game and the group – 23 points is an amazing tally to get to. “I’ll pick a team to win the game, simple as that. No one has said they could do with a rest and that’s great because we want competition for places. “We’re not going to hand out starting places easily and that’s what I’ve said to the players.” That means likely returns for seven-goal top-scorer Kyle Lafferty and midfielder Chris Baird, both suspended for the Greece match. Gareth McAuley and Oliver Norwood are also in line to play, completing a full house of 10 starts in the famous campaign. last_img read more
