France in the European Union.
This issue of the Insee Références collection follows on from the first one, published in 2008 during the french presidency of the European Union. The result of a collaboration between public statistical institutions, it gathers a body of economic and social data allowing a comparison between France and its European partners. It contains five reports offering a detailed analysis of five key European themes : the economic situation of the EU countries, particulary since the 2008 crisis ; inequalities, poverty and social protection ; the new European classification of socio-economic categories ; early school leavers ; and foreign trade in food products. Twenty or so fact sheets then provide a general European overview and adress issues relating to the population, the living conditions of households, the labour market and the economy.
