Halleröd, Björn, Ekbrand, Hans, Bengtsson,  Mattias , (2015), «In-work poverty and labour market trajectories: Poverty risks among the working population in 22 European countries»Journal of European Social Policy, Issue 5, Volume 25, pp.473-488, Δεκέμβριος

Is in-work poverty a low-wage or an unemployment problem, and is it the same problem all across Europe? Because of the definitional ambiguity, we really do not know. In this article, we use longitudinal European Union-Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC) data from 22 countries and derive a set of distinct clusters of labour market trajectories (LMTs) from information about monthly labour market position from a 36-month observation window and estimate in-work poverty risk for each LMT.
