How long can an average person in Europe expect to work over their lifetime? How much do the average worklife length differ between different countries?

Eurostat have released an interesting forecast, posted by World Economic Forum, about how long a person can expect to be active in the European labour market during his or her life. The data is measured in years and it’s based on someone who was 15-years-old in 2019.

On average, the expected duration of working life in the European Union was 35.2 years – 3.6 years longer than in 2000. In individual member states, it ranges from 32 years in Italy to 42 years in Sweden, according to an article from World Economic Forum.
