The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development publishes an annual report on the employment situation in its member countries. “Each report reviews recent trends, policy developments, and prospects. A statistical annex provides data on unemployment rates, incidence of part-time employment, employment/population ratios, and activity rates. Also included are data on expenditure on labour market programmes, average annual wages, and earnings dispersion.”
OECD Employment Outlook 2010: Moving Beyond the Jobs Crisis is now available online. You can access this 300+ page report through OECD iLibrary, a database in the GSU Library collection. This database contains the organization’s books, reports and statistical collections for every year since 1998. You can search the database by country or by theme –such as Education, Employment, Science and Technology or Urban Development.
