Interactive map –QuInnEmap

This tool lets you investigate how 22 EU countries perform within three general parameters: Job Quality, Innovation, and Employment. These parameters are comprised of a number of variables taken from the most recently available surveys from EU and OECD surveys investigating these variables. The range in each parameter is divided in quartiles: low/low; medium/low; medium/high, and high/high.

Each country’s performance is placed in a quartile allowing comparison between countries at this level, or one can explore each parameter in terms of the variables it comprises of for more in-depth understanding and comparison.
