    Incorporating gender issues in labour statistics

    01 February 1999

    Gender issues relate to the differences and similarities that exist between men and women in relation to their contributions, their conditions of work and life, and their needs, constraints and opportunities. In labour statistics, these aspects need to be reflected in definitions, measurement methods and presentation of results in order to improve the description of the labour market and provide a solid basis for promoting equality between men and women in the world of work.
