66 Other disclosures. Employees. Q3 2011 Q3 2010 Change % Q1 – Q3 2011 Q1 – Q3 2010 Change % FY 2010 Average number of employees 238,985 250,829 (4.7) 241,845 253,814 (4.7) 252,494 Domestic 122,989 127,021 (3.2) 123,156 127,540 (3.4) 126,952 International 115,996 123,808 (6.3) 118,689 126,274 (6.0) 125,542   Employees 214,425 222,836 (3.8) 216,745 225,288 (3.8) 224,428 Civil servants (domestic) 24,560 27,993 (12.3) 25,100 28,526 (12.0) 28,066   Trainees and students on cooperative degree courses 7,817 8,162 (4.2) 8,537 8,859 (3.6) 9,217 Personnel costs millions of € (2,924) (3,098) 5.6 (9,602) (9,407) (2.1) (12,988) Average headcount in Germany decreased by 3.4 percent, mainly due to workforce restructuring and reduction in the Germany operating segment and a reduction in Vivento’s headcount at Group Headquarters & Shared Services. Average headcount outside Germany decreased by 6.0 percent. In the Europe operating segment, it declined due to the change in the composition of the Group explained under “Changes in the composition of the Group.” Staff reduc- tion programs implemented as a result of efficiency enhancement programs also contributed to the lower headcount. In the United States operating seg- ment, fewer staff were employed in customer support and sales units in the first three quarters of 2011. The average number of employees in the first three quarters of 2011 includes 35,121 employees (Q1 – Q3 2010: 37,946, FY 2010: 37,795) from discontinued operations. Personnel costs increased by 2.1 percent to EUR 9.6 billion mainly as a result of the higher expenses for civil servant early retirement arrangements amounting to EUR 0.7 billion. This was partially offset by the aforementioned effects of the lower average headcount. Personnel costs no longer include any amounts relating to T-Mobile USA.

The presentation has been adjusted with retroactive effect. The intangible assets and property, plant and equipment are shown in the statement of financial position as held for sale for the first time in the first quarter of 2011, which is why depreciation, amortization and impairment losses as shown here differ from the figures included in the statement of intangible assets and property, plant and equipment. The level of depreciation, amortization and impairment losses remained almost unchanged compared with the first nine months of 2010.
