Sources and definitions

 Most of the statistics shown in these tables can be found as well in three other (paper or electronic) publications or references, as follows: 

 These publications, which include information on definitions, notes and sources used by member countries, include longer time series and more detailed data by age group, gender, duration of unemployment, etc., than are shown in this annex.
 Please note that the data on employment, unemployment and the labour force are not necessarily the same as the series used for analyses and forecasting by the OECD Economics Department and reproduced in Tables 1.2 and 1.3 of Chapter 1 of this publication.
 Interested users can refer to the on-line database, which contains data series describing the labour supply: population, labour force, employment and unemployment disaggregated by gender and age, educational attainment, employment status and sector of activity, participation and unemployment rates, statistics on part-time employment and duration of unemployment.
The on-line database contains a number of additional series on labour market results and on features of the institutional and regulatory environment affecting the functioning of labour markets. Among these are the following:

  • Annual hours of work data for comparisons of trends over time
  • Gross earnings by percentile for deriving measures of earnings dispersion for full-time workers by gender
  • Gross mean and median earnings of full-time workers by age group and gender
  • Statutory minimum wages
  • Public expenditure on labour market programmes, number of beneficiaries and inflows into the labour market
  • Trade-union density rates in OECD Member countries
