The indicator shows how employees between the ages of 20 and 64 are distributed across the various types of employment.
Standard employment is open-ended, full-time employment that does not include temporary work.
The term non-standard employment describes a wide range of types of employment. The Federal Statistical Office uses this term to describe workers on fixed-term contracts, those in marginal employment (mini jobs), part-time employees (up to 20 hours a week) and subcontracted and temp staff.
These different types of non-standard employment include duplicates, such as when someone works less than 20 hours a week as part of a fixed-term contract. The number of people in non-standard employment is therefore lower than the total of the different types of non-standard employment.
The data was gathered by the Federal Statistical Office as part of its Microcensus survey.
