The Monegasque Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (IMSEE) has published a breakdown of employees in Public Service in Monaco showing a number of interesting trends.
On December 31, 2016, 4,528 people were employed in the Public Service, representing 8.6 percent of the salaried population of the Principality.
Fifty-seven percent of the total were men, 65 percent were French, and one out of two lives in Monaco. Half of the workforce is over 45 years old.
The Government Administration and the Town Hall account respectively for 76 percent and 15 percent of employees: the Department of the Interior has the largest staff, with 1,873 employees, 54 percent of the total number in Government Administration.
A total of 610 men and 777 women occupy Category A posts, and these positions are 46 percent occupied by Monegasques, up from 43 percent in 2013.
While just over half of the total reside in the Principality – 50.2 percent – this decreases each year for the benefit of neighbouring municipalities. The full focus can be found online.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
