Proportion of long-term unemployed persons (%)

Methodology

The indicator points to a structural mismatch between supply and demand on the labour market. Increasing share of the long-term unemployed persons on the labour market also points to the risk of upcoming higher expenditures on social security of these persons from public funds, an increased risk of social exclusions, etc. A long-term unemployed person is a such person who is registered at the Labour Office for more than 12 months (for graduates it is more than 6 months).

Numerator:

Number of long-term unemployed job seekers in municipalities in the metropolitan area * 100

Denominator:

Number of all registered job seekers in the metropolitan area

Interpretation

Since 2014, unemployment has been decreasing overall in the Czech Republic. In 2018, the share of long-term unemployed persons was 33, 20 % in the Brno Metropolitan Area. One of the reasons why people do not have a job is that the employers do not offer sufficient financial rewards which the long-term unemployed persons would have imagined. From the data below, there is a significant decrease in these relative values observed in the metropolitan area. From the below-selected municipalities, this situation does not apply to Kuřim and Židlochovice (although, there was an overall decline in the number of job seekers and long-term unemployed persons).
