    Panorama des pensions 2015 - Les indicateurs de l'OCDE et du G20

    Ce volume de Panorama des pensions, le dixième de cette série, passe en revue les réformes de pensions entreprises dans les pays de l’OCDE et du G20 depuis deux ans. Deux chapitres spéciaux proposent une analyse plus approfondie des pensions du premier pilier et de l’impact des carrières courtes ou interrompues (en raison d’une entrée tardive sur le marché du travail, des soins aux enfants ou du chômage) sur les droits à pension. Un autre chapitre montre également comment les taux de remplacement futurs sont sensibles à tout changement de paramètres. Un vaste arsenal d’indicateurs des politiques publiques menées en la matière ainsi qu’une description des régimes sont proposés pour l’ensemble des pays de l’OCDE et du G20.

    Comment va la vie ? 2015 - Mesurer le bien-être

    Le rapport Comment va la vie ? décrit les facteurs déterminants du bien-être dans les pays membres et partenaires de l’OCDE. Il présente un large éventail de statistiques, qui portent à la fois sur le bien-être matériel (à savoir les revenus, l’emploi et le logement) et la qualité de la vie au sens large (à savoir la santé, l’éducation, l’équilibre entre travail et vie privée, l’environnement, les liens sociaux, l’engagement civique, le bien-être subjectif et la sécurité). Le rapport fait le point sur les niveaux de bien-être les plus récents, sur son évolution dans le temps et sur sa répartition entre différentes catégories de population.

    Cette troisième édition de Comment va la vie ? apporte en outre des éclairages nouveaux sur le bien-être. L’accent est mis en particulier sur le bien-être des enfants, et les données montrent que tous ne prennent pas un bon départ dans la vie ; le bien-être des enfants des familles les plus mal loties étant plus incertain. Le rapport propose également de nouveaux indicateurs afin d’étudier l’évolution de certaines ressources naturelles, humaines, sociales et économiques qui favorisent la durabilité du bien-être au fil du temps. Un chapitre consacré au bénévolat met en évidence que les activités bénévoles peuvent être à l’origine d’un cercle vertueux : faire le bien autour de soi est également bénéfique pour soi et cela entraîne de nombreux autres avantages en termes de bien-être, tant pour les bénévoles eux-mêmes que pour la société dans son ensemble. Enfin, le rapport examine les inégalités en matière de bien-être entre différentes régions à l’intérieur des pays et montre que le lieu où l’on vit peut influer sur la qualité de vie des personnes.

    Comment va la vie ? fait partie de l’Initiative du vivre mieux de l’OCDE, qui comprend une série de publications sur la mesure du bien-être ainsi que l’Indicateur du vivre mieux, site web interactif destiné à faire participer les citoyens au débat sur ce qu’une vie meilleure signifie pour eux.

    OECD Reviews of Labour Market and Social Policies: Latvia 2016

    Latvia has undergone major economic and social change since the early 1990s. Despite an exceptionally deep recession following the global financial crisis, impressive economic growth over the past two decades has narrowed income and productivity gaps relative to comparator countries in the OECD. But Latvians report low degrees of life satisfaction, very large numbers of Latvians have left the country, and growth has not been inclusive. A volatile economy and very large income disparities create pressing needs for more effective social and labour-market policies. The government’s reform programme rightly acknowledges inequality as a key challenge. However, without sustained policy efforts and adequate resources, there is a risk that productivity and income growth could remain below potential and social cohesion could be further weakened by high or rising inequality.

    OECD Reviews of Health Care Quality: United Kingdom 2016 - Raising Standards

    The National Health Service in the United Kingdom takes health care quality seriously and makes great effort to be a system that learns. The current NHS Outcomes Framework is entirely built around quality and patient-centredness is the system’s focal point. The drive to provide high quality care means that the United Kingdom has internationally pioneered many initiatives, including clinical guidelines, continuing professional development and use of patient surveys and patient-reported outcomes. Professionalism was for many years the trusted base upon which quality monitoring and improvement activities rested. In recent years, though, this governance model has progressively shifted toward a quality management approach, more reliant upon regulation and control. There has been a proliferation of national agencies, reviews and policies that address quality, leading to a somewhat congested and fragmented field of actors, particularly in the fields of inspection and performance monitoring. A tension, perhaps more pronounced than in other OECD health systems, is now evident between top-down quality management approaches and bottom-up quality improvement techniques. What should the United Kingdom do to resolve this tension and ensure that its quality architecture remains one that is studied and emulated by other OECD health systems? This report recommends three key actions. First, greater emphasis on professionalism should be reinstated as a key driver of excellence. As the same time there is scope to simplify the range of institutions and policies regulating health care quality. Finally, renewed focus on the quality at the interfaces of care, as well as on community-based services, is needed.

    OECD Reviews of Pension Systems: Mexico

    This review assesses the Mexican pension system according to the OECD best practices and guidelines, and draws on international experiences and examples to make recommendations on how to improve it. It provides an international perspective on Mexico’s retirement income provision and a short and focused review of the Mexican pension system. The review covers all components of the pension system: public and private pension provision for public and private-sector workers. It provides recommendations, using OECD’s best practices in pension design, on how to improve the Mexican pension system and thus ameliorate the retirement income that people may receive from the pension system.

    Measuring and Assessing Well-being in Israel

    Measuring and Assessing Well-being in Israel provides a description of the level, distribution, and sustainability of well-being in Israel. Drawing on the methodology developed in the bi-annual report on well-being in OECD countries – How's Life? – this report extends the methodology to provide in an-depth examination of well-being in a single OECD country. The report examines well-being in Israel in the context of the Israeli government's recent initiative to develop indicators of well-being, resilience, and sustainability, and provides a complementary account of well-being in Israel with a stronger focus on international comparisons.

    Going beyond a simple statistical description of the level and distribution of well-being in Israel, the report also uses Israel as a case study of how well-being measures can be used to identify areas of high policy relevance. In particular, the report analyses the preferences of Israeli citizens across the different dimensions of the OECD well-being framework. Finally, the report reviews the Israeli statistical system from the perspective of measuring well-being, and notes the key areas where further statistical development is desirable.

    Measuring and Assessing Well-being in Israel is part of the OECD Better Life Initiative, which features a series of publications on measuring well-being, as well as the Better Life Index, an interactive website that aims to involve citizens in the debate about what a better life means to them.

    High-Level Conference on Integration of Beneficiaries of International Protection: Press conference remarks

    In 2015, more than 1 million people crossed the Mediterranean Sea in search of international protection. 1.5 million claimed asylum in OECD countries. This is almost twice the number recorded in 2014. At the same time, they represent only about 0.1% of the total OECD population, and, even in Europe, they represent less than 0.3% of the total EU population. Europe has the capacity and the experience to deal with this inflow.

    Making Integration Work - Refugees and others in need of protection

    The OECD series Making Integration Work draws on key lessons from the OECD’s work on integration, particularly the Jobs for Immigrants country reviews series. The objective is to summarise in a non-technical way the main challenges and good policy practices to support the lasting integration of immigrants and their children for selected key groups and domains of integration.  Each volume presents ten lessons and examples of good practice, complemented by synthetic comparisons of the integration policy frameworks in OECD countries. This first volume deals with refugees and others in need of protection, referred to as humanitarian migrants.

    OECD Reviews of Labour Market and Social Policies: Colombia 2016

    Colombia has made major economic and social advances in recent years. The combination of strong economic growth and policies targeted at the most vulnerable groups improved considerably the living standards of the Colombian population. Today, the country enjoys higher employment and labour force participation rates than the average of OECD countries and unemployment is steadily declining. Nevertheless, despite these positive trends, deep structural problems remain. Labour informality is widespread, the rate of self-employment is high and many employees have non-regular contracts. Income inequality is higher than in any OECD country and redistribution through taxes and benefits is almost negligible. In addition, half a century of internal conflict and violence has displaced a significant part of the population, and many of them are living in extreme poverty. Despite considerable progress, violence continues to be a challenge and also affects trade union members and leaders. The Colombian Government has undertaken important reforms in recent years to address these labour market and social challenges, and the efforts are gradually paying off. However, further progress is needed to enhance the quality of jobs and well-being for all. The main trust of this report is to support the Colombian Government in tackling labour market duality, generate trust between the social partners, develop inclusive and active social policies, and get the most out of international migration.
