Average headcount outside Germany decreased by 7.1 percent. In the Europe operating segment, it declined due to the change in the composition of the Group explained under “Effects of changes in the composition of the Group.” Staff reduction programs implemented as a result of efficiency improvements also contributed to the lower headcount. In the United States operating segment, fewer staff were employed in customer support and sales units in the first quarter of 2011. The average number of employees in the first quarter of 2011 includes 36,237 employees (Q1 2010: 38,663; FY 2010: 37,795) from discontinued operations. The aforementioned effects on the average headcount were the main reason for a 4.1-percent decrease in personnel costs in the first quarter of 2011 com- pared with the first quarter of 2010. Personnel costs no longer included any amounts relating to T-Mobile USA.
