The project is conducted for Eurostat by the consortium composed of Applica (leader) and Alphametrics. The overall purpose of the project is to support Eurostat in the continued undertaking of ESSPROS related activities and to assist in the work to further develop the ESSPROS system. There are four main tasks in the project. The first task covers the activities for the development of the existing ESSPROS data collections. The second task aims at supporting extension of the ESSSPROS system through the development of the methodological basis for a new data collection on the number of recipients/beneficiaries of social benefits in the unemployment function. Thirdly, the project provides support for meetings by assisting Eurostat in the preparation and delivery of meetings that underpin the on-going process of exchange and consensus building amongst ESSPROS stakeholders. The fourth and the final task includes statistical training for ESSPROS domain.

Development of a draft methodology for the collection of harmonised statistics on childcare
The primary concern of this project, after collecting data on the demand and provision of childcare from all Member States, was to indicate the data which still need to be made available in order to assess the support available to those with children and the use they make of this. A parallel aim was to develop a methodology for data collection to ensure some degree of coherence and as much comparability as possible across countries.
