The national employment services have become a central point in the struggle against unemployment in the most countries. In Serbia, National Employment Service is under direct administration of the government, especially in the scope of labour market policy. The government is unable to carry out its policy without reliably information which is generated by the solid labour market policy database. The specific objective of this paper is the analysis of labour market policy database in Serbia and comparison with Eurostat database and methodology. Labour market policy databases in different countries have the structure based on unique methodology. Despite that, most common structure involves labour market policy register, as first section, register of participants, as second section and register of expenditures, as third. For the purpose of this paper we conducted the brief analysis of overall information system in National Employment Service in Serbia and detailed analysis of database sections including input variables and the ability of generating different reports. The prior research in this area was conducted in the first half of 2011, as a part of the EUNES IPA programme “Technical assistance for capacity building of the National Employment Services – Republic of Serbia for data management, forecasts, monitoring and evaluation”. Bearing in mind the conclusions in the previous research and findings of our analysis we found that there is no significant differences between scope of database, classification of interventions, expenditures and participants in the structure of database in Serbia in comparison with Eurostat methodology. We also find that the main problem in the matching in database is the differences between profession title list and job title list.
