Key Indicators of the Labour Market 1999 (KILM) provides the general reader as well as the expert with concise explanations and analysis of the data on the world’s labor markets, including global and regional estimates.
Harvesting vast information from international data repositories as well as regional and national statistical sources, this important reference offers data on a broad range of countries for the years 1980 and 1990, and all available subsequent years.

Using statistical data on the labor force, employment, unemployment, underemployment, educational attainment of the workforce, wages and compensation, productivity and labor costs, and poverty and income distribution as market indicators, the volume enables readers to access the most current information available.
