[1998/4] OECD Data on Skills: Employment by Industry and Occupation

 

OECD DATA ON SKILLS: EMPLOYMENT BY INDUSTRY AND OCCUPATION

Economic Analysis and Statistics Division

This document aims to disseminate to a wider public the data on employment by industry and occupations for ten OECD countries, that have been collected over the last few years in the context of analytical work which explores empirically the changing patterns of skills in OECD countries. The industrial coverage of the data allows them to be used in conjunction with similar disaggregated OECD databases, while the occupational detail and time coverage track the evolution of skills profiles over the last one or two decades. The data in this document have been declassified by the Statistical Working Party of the OECD Industry Committee with the understanding that they represent OECD Secretariat estimates and not official country submissions.
