Now in its 10th year, the Key Indicators of the Labour Market (KILM) offers the general user with instant and uncomplicated access to data and analysis on the world's labour markets.

Harvesting vast information from international data repositories, and regional and national statistical sources, this important reference tool offers data for over 200 countries for the years 1980 through the latest available subsequent year. The KILM is a collection of 20 "key" indicators of the labour market that touch on employment and variables relating to employment (status, sector, hours, etc.), the lack of work and the characteristics of jobseekers, education, wages and compensation costs, labour productivity and working poverty. Taken together, the indicators give a strong foundation from which to begin addressing key questions related to productive employment and decent work.

Also available in the KILM manuscripts are the latest world and regional estimates of labour force participation rates, employment-to-population ratios, status in employment, employment by sector, unemployment and youth unemployment rates, inactivity rates, employment elasticities and working poverty.
