Labour statistics


The ILO collects and compiles national and international statistics on labour issues, consumer prices, cost of living, socio-economic data and population censuses.

Check out our research guide on Labour Statistics or the ILO statistical databases to locate the statistical information you need.

The ILO Library focuses on collecting three main types of statistical information:

  • Statistics of Intergovernmental Organizations
    This includes publications of other intergovernmental organizations, as well as the ILO's own publications.
     
  • Statistics by country
    We collect publications on a wide range of topics such as national accounts, education, literacy, health, standard of living, industry, enterprises and other social and economic indicators.
     
  • Labour Force Surveys
    A large collection of labour force surveys covering many countries, including links to the national statistics can be found through the Labour Force Surveys database.
