The world’s foremost statistical reference on labor questions, this annual resource provides the principal labor statistics for over 190 countries, areas, and territories, with tables providing detailed data from the last ten years. Offering a unique trilingual format, it contains nine comprehensive chapters focusing on economically active population, employment, unemployment, hours of work, wages, labor costs, consumer prices, occupational injuries, strikes, and lockouts. Where available, separate figures by sex are shown in the tables on economically active population, employment, unemployment, hours of work, and wages.
