    21 May 2013

    The International Labour Office (ILO) programme on estimates and projections of the economically active population (EPEAP) is part of a larger international effort on demographic estimates and projections to which several UN agencies contribute.

    01 June 2000

    The purpose of this article is to evaluate the ILO data in relation to the UNSECO data on school enrolment for 44 countries for the year 1990. An earlier evaluation based on Child Labour Surveys in 6 countries (Cambodia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, and Turkey) showed suprisingly that except for one country (Philippines) the ILO labour force participation rates for the age group 10-14 years tended to be higher than the corresponding rates obtained from specialised national child labour surveys.

  7. 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.

  1. Manual on the Measurement of Volunteer Work

    23 March 2011

    This Manual on the Measurement of Volunteer Work is intended to guide countries in generating systematic and comparable data on volunteer work via regular supplements to labour force or other household surveys. The objective is to make available comparative cross-national data on a significant form of work that is growing in importance but that is often ignored or rarely captured in traditional economic statistics. Doing so will help to fulfill the United Nations Secretary General’s recommendations in his follow-up to the implementation of the International Year of Volunteers report (United Nations, 2005) that governments “vigorously” pursue “actions to build up a knowledge base” about volunteer work and to “establish the economic value of volunteering.”
