The development of a methodology to measure progress towards decent work could be conceived of as a process which could involve work on: the identification of a global template of qualitative and quantitative indicators that can be used to measure progress towards decent work at the country level; the collection of statistical data and qualitative information related to selected decent work indicators; and finally the presentation of decent work indicators and information on rights at work and the legal framework for decent work in detailed country profiles.

This discussion paper, presented at the Tripartite Meeting of Experts on the Measurement of Decent Work in 2008, has been concerned with the measurement of decent work and, more specifically, how progress towards decent work can be monitored at the country level. It began by discussing which implications could be drawn from the nature of the Decent Work Agenda for the measurement of decent work, and emphasized that rights at work are relevant to all aspects of the Decent Work Agenda. On the basis of this discussion, it concluded that two types of information are needed to monitor progress towards decent work at the country level: statistical indicators and information on rights at work and the legal framework for decent work.
