OECD Employment Outlook: 2003 Edition: More and better jobs? Aggregate performance during the past decade
The share of the working‐age population in employment rose in two thirds of all OECD countries during the past decade. However, the OECD average hides a wide diversity of experiences, ranging from dramatic increases in employment rates in a few countries to rising unemployment or greater labour market inactivity in others. Are employment gains registered during the past decade sustainable? How do employment losses recorded in the current economic slowdown compare with previous recessions? Is there evidence that progress in increasing employment has been accompanied by improvements in "job quality", notably as regards earnings inequality, job insecurity and working conditions?
