The research on Working Life Barometer in the Baltic Countries 2002 is the second Working Life Barometer concerning the Baltic nations. Its purpose is to examine the current state of Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian working life and recent changes in it. The results of the barometer are representative – that is, they reflect the overall working life situation in each of the countries. Besides monitoring changes within the Baltic nations and making comparisons between them, it is also possible to compare the results with those for Finland. The study is part of the co-operation with neighbouring areas implemented by the Finnish Ministry of Labour.
