DISPLACED WORKERS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Displaced workers are workers who permanently lost a stable job in the last few years and who are currently unemployed, out of the labour force or re-employed.

The analysis of displaced workers relies on flow analysis concerned with what happens to these workers after displacement from their job. Do they find another job or not, and if so, under what conditions? These studies are based on longitudinal or retrospective follow-up surveys.
