The OECD launched a project on “Benchmarking ICTs in health systems”, a multi-stakeholder initiative to improve the availability and quality of health ICT data through the development of a robust measurement framework and comparable cross-national measures. This task was accomplished in 2013 with the publication of an OECD “Guide to Measuring ICTs in the Health Sector”.
Les impôts sur les salaires du travailleur moyen ont augmenté d’environ 1 point de pourcentage entre 2010 et 2014 dans les pays de l’OCDE,, alors même que dans la majorité des pays, le taux légal de l’impôt sur le revenu n’a pas été relevé, selon un nouveau rapport publié par l’OCDE.
People today are living longer than ever before, while birth rates are dropping in the majority of OECD countries. Such demographics raise the question: are current public social expenditures adequate and sustainable? Older workers play a crucial role in the labour market. Now that legal retirement ages are rising, fewer older workers are retiring early, but at the same time those older workers who have lost their job after the age of 50 have tended to remain in long term unemployment. What can countries do to help? How can they give older people better work incentives and opportunities? These reports offer analysis and assessment on what the best policies are for fostering employability, job mobility and labour demand at an older age.
The large and growing human and financial cost of dementia provides an imperative for policy action. It is already the second largest cause of disability for the over-70s and it costs $645bn per year globally, and ageing populations mean that these costs will grow.
There is no cure or effective treatment for dementia, and too often people do not get appropriate health and care services, leading to a poor quality of life. Our failure to tackle these issues provides a compelling illustration of some of today’s most pressing policy challenges. We need to rethink our research an innovation model, since progress on dementia has stalled and investment is just a fraction of what it is for other diseases of similar importance and profile. But even then a cure will be decades away, so we need better policies to improve the lives of people living with dementia now. Communities need to adjust to become more accommodating of people with dementia and families who provide informal care must be better supported. Formal care services and care institutions need to promote dignity and independence, while coordination of health and care services must be improved. But there is hope: if we can harness big data we may be able to address the gaps in our knowledge around treatment and care.
Ce rapport présente un diagnostic détaillé du marché du travail des jeunes en Tunisie, en prêtant une attention particulière à la formation professionnelle et à l’entrepreneuriat et en se plaçant dans le contexte de la transition de la Tunisie vers une économie verte. Il opte pour une perspective comparative internationale dans son analyse des différents moyens d’améliorer le passage de l’école au travail. Il offre aussi à d’autres pays la possibilité de tirer des enseignements des mesures novatrices prises par la Tunisie pour renforcer les compétences des jeunes et leurs résultats en matière d’emploi.
This paper presents an overview of the situation of youth in OECD countries since the financial crisis, describing the characteristics and living conditions of young NEETs. It provides data on income-support policies for young people, and summarises available evidence on the impact of interventions that aim at improving the social, education and employment situation of the most disadvantaged youth.

The purpose of this note is twofold. It first attempts to provide a “ballpark” estimate of the impact of the GS on employment given their estimated impact on growth. The second purpose is to put forward options for the consideration of the G20 Employment Working Group (EWG) for a mapping exercise to identify the coherence, complementarities and synergies between the measures put forward in the Growth Srategies and the Employment Plans.

This paper reviews recent trends in the labour share in G20 countries (and over a long period of time in a few) and discusses possible causes of the observed trends. It then explores linkages between the labour income share and the main components of aggregate demand.
