Présentation du cours

Labour statistics enable us to monitor one of the most important aspects of our well-being: work. As we spend a large part of our lives at work and live on the earnings from it, it is crucial that governments have access to timely and relevant data to inform accurate and sound policies. 

Simultaneously, the world of work is changing, fast, and many people still face inequality in their jobs. This Masterclass shares progress and stories about labour statistics, highlighting different issues that exist in the global labour market. The Masterclass demonstrates how data is essential for countries to ‘make the invisible visible’ and measure the progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of each country.

Watch the 9 video lessons to hear directly from Senior Experts in the ILO Department of Statistics about the challenges and developments countries are facing nowadays in what concerns labour statistics, and how International Statistical Standards are instrumental in developing statistical systems global in order to pave the way for a better future that promotes social justice through decent work.
