This Statistics in Focus describes the structure and trends of employment in the hotels and restaurants sector (HORECA). This analysis is carried out at the European level (EU-25 and EFTA countries) and based on information from the Community Labour Force Survey (LFS). The hotels and restaurants sector plays an important role as a job creator in both the whole economy and the service sector in many EU Member States. It is also shown to be dominated by young people and women, a large number of the latter working part-time.
