Update: International Labour Org. Expands Online Dbase to Include New Data on 17 Economic Sectors"

From an International Labour Organization Announcement:

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has expanded its online database of labour market statistics to include information disaggregated by sector of the economy. Data are available for 17 sectors in 54 countries according to their national classifications, ranging from agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and construction to trade or transport, among others.


The new content is being introduced just a few months after the ILO Department of Statistics launched a renovated and expanded short-term indicators database aimed at providing analysts, policy-makers and the media with the latest labour statistics.

The database also contains labour market indicators for countries that release official information on a monthly or quarterly basis. Currently, it provides national profile for 75 countries and over 100 indicators disaggregated by gender. Users can obtain a printable page with the latest data or download Excel files. The ILO statistics tool also includes an interactive map containing most of the data organized by country and topic.
