Key Indicators of the Labour MarketeBook - 2012
Key Indicators of the Labour Market (KILM) is a wide-ranging reference tool that offers the general user instant and uncomplicated access to data and analysis on the world's labor markets. Harvesting information from international data repositories as well as regional and national statistical sources, the KILM offers data for over two hundred countries from 1980 to the latest available year for each country.
The eighteen key labor market indicators cover employment (status, sector, hours, etc.), the lack of work and the characteristics of job seekers, education, wages and compensation costs, labor productivity, and working poverty. Taken together, the indicators provide a strong foundation from which to address key questions related to productive employment and decent work. This seventh edition adds two new indicators: employment by occupation and average monthly wages. It also expands access to global and regional aggregates of indicators and analyzes part-time work as it relates to gender equality.
