Database descriptions, statistical standards (resolutions and guidelines), and guides and manuals – all the metadata to better understand the labour statistics presented on ILOSTAT.
Measuring and analysing the informality of jobs, economic units and productive activities continues to be a challenge for many developing countries; it hinders policymaking, as the contribution made by the informal economy is unaccounted for due to a lack of data and statistics. Bearing in mind the growing demand for a better understanding of the functioning of the informal economy and ways of measuring informal employment, the International Training Centre of the ILO in Turin (ITCILO), in close collaboration with the ILO Department of Statistics, is proud to offer this e-learning course on Measuring Informal Employment.
