Abstract

This paper analyses the recent evolution of the Spanish Labour Market at national and regional level with the aim of understanding the current situation in the supply side labour market, and showing how it has been evolving during the last years. The purpose of our work will contribute to note the different economic factors that have lead to the high creation and destruction in the different areas of the country. We provide empirical evidence of employment, unemployment, activity and inactivity rates together with more specific data gathered for males, females and young population. Results indicate firstly, that there are two completely different patterns in Spain (North vs. South).Secondly, even though the crisis has gone by, many aspects still need to be improved: young and women unemployment together with the long-term unemployment, as well as the poor competitive position in Spain linked with low flexibility and efficiency in the market level. Thus, our work contributes to the central objective of showing the current situation of Labour market as a starting-point for policy-makers to improve the situation in those communities in which unemployment rates are still really high, so that our country is able to achieve a convergence among the Regional communities and improve the situation at a national level.
