Labour statistics

Labour statistics are an essential basis for planning and monitoring social and economic progress in developed and developing countries. This applies in particular to the evaluation of the situation concerning equal opportunity and treatment in employment. Labour statistics ought to be carried out:

• on the economically active population, on employment, unemployment and underemployment at least once a year;

• on average earnings and hours of work at least once a year;

• on the structure and distribution of the economically active population, including the nature of employment (employer, self-employed, employee, unpaid family worker, member of producers' cooperative) every ten years.

These statistics ought to be classified according to the sex of workers and, whenever possible, age group and branch of economic activity. The availability of sex-disaggregated data and statistical information enables comparative analysis of how women and men fare in work and society. This helps detect existing discrimination, especially in the less transparent form of indirect discrimination.
