Activity rate: Description
The population activity is an indicator that measures the share of the working population in the total population. In this respect, it provides information about the economic and social conditions in a region. In economic terms, population activity is closely linked to the creation of value or economic growth in a region, as employed persons are an essential resource of the economy and potential economic performance is usually also correlated with population activity. From a social point of view, it provides information on the demographic structure of the population, since population activity excludes, among others, young people and the elderly.
