International Labor Organization (ILO) Launches New Statistics Portal
From the ILO Website:
The ILO Department of Statistics has launched a new statistics’ portal that makes it easy to access data about a wide range of labour-related topics, by country or by subject, in English, French and Spanish.
It is a one-stop shop to obtain labour data and learn about labour statistics. ILOSTAT provides bulk downloads for those who need large datasets and detailed cross-tabulations. It is also an invaluable tool for data producers, who can find data collection guidance and other resources.
Statistical information can be accessed by country, or by key topics – such as employment, working poor, union membership and child labour – and includes data tables, concepts, methods and publications. The ILOSTAT country profiles are also available on mobile devices via a free app.
