The Regional Economic Structure of the European Union: an Analysis of Long-Term Developments
In the present paper** we describe the changes that have occurred in the structure of employment by branch in the regional system of the EU over the period 1950 – 1990. We have distinguished four ten-year subperiods. Moreover, for some elements of the analysis we give a forecast for the year 2000. So we span half a century.
