Forms of work: An overview of the new statistical standards
An introduction to the conceptual frameworks for forms of work and labour force statistics, including labour underutilization.
Given the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, many national statistical offices have been facing obstacles to carrying out their work in a normal way. There is a need to reflect on these challenges and try to overcome the problems by finding solutions that enable NSOs to continue doing their work in line with international statistical standards despite the pandemic. With this in mind, the ILO Department of Statistics, in collaboration with the ITCILO, is organizing this course to reflect on the ongoing challenges, present the latest international statistical guidelines for NSOs in dealing with the pandemic, find innovative solutions to overcoming the COVID-19 disruption, and continue doing their work.
