Seven indicators to measure decent work: An international comparison

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


Building upon the contribution by Anker et al., this article investigates the practicability of a subset of seven indicators that measure decent work deficits (e.g. "low hourly pay", "excessive hours of work", "male-female gap in labour force participation"). Each indicator is presented with illustrative data and a discussion of what to look out for when using it for international comparison. Since a country's scores on the seven indicators can be added up to assess overall performance, the authors conclude with a tentative ranking of countries. But this, they warn, remains subject to the quality and comparability of national data.
