Since its first edition in 1936, the Yearbook of Labour Statistics has established itself as the world’s foremost work of statistical reference on labor questions, systematically compiling data from a vast network of authoritative sources of information in some 190 countries. Data are published, wherever possible, according to the latest versions of the following international standard classifications: International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities (ISIC), Revision 3; International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO-88); International Classification of Status in Employment (ICSE-93) and the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED), 1976.

Time Series contains 31 tables corresponding to nine major substantive chapters on economically active population, employment, unemployment, hours of work, wages, labor cost, consumer prices, occupational injuries, and strikes and lockouts. The series usually covers the preceding ten years.

First published in 2006, Country Profiles offers a new format showing the latest available statistics (without time series) on the topics of economically active population, employment, unemployment, hours of work, wages, labor cost, consumer prices, occupational injuries, and strikes and lockouts, for over 200 countries, areas, and territories.

It also includes a supplement with global and regional estimates on economically active population, employment, and unemployment. Data are published, wherever possible, according to the latest versions of the international standard classifications such as ISIC, ISCO, ICSE, and ISCED.
