Abstract:Most of the statistics shown in these tables can also be found in two other (paper or electronic) publications and data repository, as follows:
The annual edition of OECD Labour Force Statistics, 1988‐2008;
OECD.Stat, the OECD's central data warehouse (www.oecd.org/els/employment/data), which contains both raw data and derived statistics.
These references, which include information on definitions, notes and sources used by member countries, contain longer time series and more detailed data by age group, gender, part‐time employment, duration of unemployment, and other series than are shown in this annex, such as, temporary employment, employee job tenure, involuntary part‐time employment, distribution of employment by weekly usual hours worked intervals, etc.
Please note that the data on employment, unemployment and the labour force are not necessarily the same as the series used for analyses and forecasting by the OECD Economics Department that are reported in the OECD Economic Outlook and shown in some charts and tables of Chapter 1 of this publication.
