The demand for analyzing labour market data has risen, in line with the prioritization of countries to better understand the functioning of the labour market and the impact of policies and programmes on outcomes, including unemployment and employment. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires governments and other stakeholders to monitor progress towards the defined goals and targets, including SDG 8 on Decent Work and Economic Growth. At the same time, new measures of the labour market are evolving through the adoption of statistical standards by the International Conference of Labour Statisticians (ICLS). The 19th and 20th ICLS resolutions on work statistics are crucial for decent work related SDG indicators, particularly SDG 8 on promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, employment and decent work for all. The analysis of labour market data relies on the availability of data, which has expanded in recent years, and the use of appropriate methodologies to identify key factors and trends relevant to evidence-based policy-making. In this regard, analysts and statisticians depend on statistical software that provides a user-friendly approach to data management, description, graphics and analysis. STATA is such a tool, which is powerful but easy-to-use, and is utilized across the world for analyzing labour market data. Building on its long experience in delivering training on labour market statistics, the International Training Centre of the ILO in full collaboration with the ILO Department of Statistics is proud to offer this online training on using STATA for labour market analysis. Harnessing the latest ground-breaking distance learning technologies, the ITCILO is proudly offering this course online for the first time in full collaboration with the ILO Department of Statistics.
