(2012) Eurobarometer n° 393 - Discrimination in the EU in 2012

in Quantitative
European Commission

The European Commission published in November 2012 a new Eurobarometer which looks into attitudes and perceptions of Europeans towards discrimination, based on different grounds (gender, ethnic origin, religion or beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity). The age-related results highlight that the economic crisis is contributing to an increase of perceived discrimination in the labour market, especially for older persons - more than two-third of Europeans (67%) believe the economic crisis is contributing to more discrimination against “older” workers (those aged over 55).
