Public sector employment

The aim of the public sector employment statistics is to show the number of jobs and full-time employees within the general government sector. The public sector employment statistics allow a distribution according to the COFOG groups (Classification of the Functions of Government), which is the distribution of the public expenses calculated by the National Accounts.
