Eurosurveillance remains in the updated list of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). It was first added to the DOAJ on 9 September 2004. Eurosurveillance is also listed in the Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access / Rights MEtadata for Open archiving (SHERPA/RoMEO) [2], a database which uses a colour‐coding scheme to classify publishers according to their self‐archiving policy and to show the copyright and open access self-archiving policies of academic journals. Eurosurveillance is listed there as a ‘green’ journal, which means that authors can archive pre-print (i.e. pre-refereeing), post-print (i.e. final draft post-refereeing) and archive the publisher's version/PDF.

ESCAIDE participants are invited to the fifth Eurosurveillance scientific seminar on 30 November 2016

WHO publishes report on health and health inequalities based on data from the Eurostat Labour Force Survey
  1. European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control

Citation style for this article: Eurosurveillance editorial team. WHO publishes report on health and health inequalities based on data from the Eurostat Labour Force Survey. Euro Surveill. 2011;16(3):pii=19768. Available online: http://www.eurosurveillance.org/ViewArticle.aspx?ArticleId=19768

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently published a report based on data from Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union (EU). The report, “What does Eurostat’s Labour Force Survey say about health and health inequalities in the European Union”, is only available online [1].

The publication analyses data made available recently from the Eurostat Labour Force Survey [2] and seeks to measure health and socioeconomic inequalities in health. It includes data from 25 European countries and covers the period 1983-2004.

The report concludes that ‘the Labour Force Survey may add a useful and hitherto unexploited resource for measuring socioeconomic inequalities in health across European countries and over time. Future research should use the Labour Force Survey data to try to identify and measure the drivers of health inequalities in the region’.

The main limitations of the report as stated by the authors are that while they consider the potential of the Labour Force Survey dataset to be of importance, it has limitations from a health perspective because its health information is exclusively related to various dimensions of absence from the workplace due to illness, or to being employed.
