OECD Employment Outlook ‐ 2006 Edition: Boosting Jobs and Incomes: Short‐term Labour Market Prospects and Introduction to the OECD Jobs Strategy Reassessment
Abstract:Is the employment situation improving in OECD countries?

As a result, unemployment rates should continue to ease, gradually reversing the rise in unemployment that accompanied the world economic slowdown earlier this decade.
