Experience from the substantial health gains of the 20th century suggests that spending on prevention could be an important factor. Therefore, gathering data on such spending that are consistent and comparable, both over time and across countries, is potentially very useful. This paper aims to help clarify what should be included as spending on prevention under SHA 2011 to facilitate accurate comparisons.
The OECD, in collaboration with the ILO, has prepared a series of reports to support the Ministers’ discussions at the G20 Labour and Employment Ministerial meeting in Russia
Après avoir chuté brutalement en 2010, les dépenses de santé ont continué de stagner dans l’ensemble des pays de l’OCDE en 2011, alors que la crise économique continuait de peser notamment sur les pays européens, comme le montre la Base de données de l’OCDE sur la santé 2013.
This report provides an overview of the substantial ageing and employment policy initiatives already implemented in Norway over the past decade and identifies areas where more should be done, covering both supply-side and demand-side aspects.
To give better incentives to carry on working, the report recommends further reforms in the second-pillar pension schemes, particularly for public sector employees. On the side of employers, it is important to progress towards more age-neutral hiring decisions and to review of age limits for mandatory retirement.
To improve the employability of older workers, the focus should be to promote job-related training with a particular focus on mid-career workers and to encourage initiatives based on a full-time culture and good working conditions for all.

While the number of elderly people in need of care is projected to at least double, governments are struggling to deliver high-quality care to people facing reduced functional and cognitive capabilities. Based on a recent OECD and EC report, this policy brief looks at data and policies to measure quality in long-term care and drive standards of care up.
As ageing societies are pushing a growing number of frail old people into needing care, delivering quality long-term care services – care that is safe, effective, and responsive to needs – has become a priority for governments. Yet much still remains to be done to enhance evidence-based measurement and improvement of quality of long-term care services across EU and OECD countries. This book offers evidence and examples of useful experiences to help policy makers, providers and experts measure and improve the quality of long-term care services.
Après 3 années de baisse consécutive, les flux migratoires sont repartis à la hausse, mais de façon modérée. Même en période de crise et de restrictions budgétaires, les flux migratoires internationaux sont essentiels au bon fonctionnement de nos économies, a souligné le Secrétaire-Général de l'OCDE.
Après trois années consécutives de contraction en période de crise, les flux migratoires sont de nouveau orientés à la hausse, principalement en raison des tendances observées au sein de l’Union européenne. Mais les perspectives d’emploi se sont assombries pour les immigrés, un immigré sur deux environ en Europe étant à la recherche d’un emploi depuis plus de 12 mois, selon un nouveau rapport de l'OCDE.
Conference to launch the The OECD Analytical Report on Displaced Workers. This report uses a comparable methodology to examine job displacement in its consequences in 15 countries. Along with providing more reliable international comparisons, this study provides new findings about the impact of displacement on skill-use and job benefits, issues that have received relatively little attention in the research literature.
