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.
Improving the knowledge base in the area of labour statistics, particularly labour migration statistics, will contribute to a better understanding of the underlying causes of poverty and social exclusion. Accurate, robust and timely data collected in accordance with international standards is therefore necessary for devising effective labour migration policies, which are essential for improving the welfare of international migrant workers and addressing the challenges related to international labour migration, globally and at the national level. Finally, in order to assess the coherence of employment and labour-migration policies, and identify where current and potential challenges remain, there is a need to collect and analyse appropriate quantitative and qualitative information in a systematic way. The International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO), in partnership with the ILO Department of Statistics and the Labour Migration Branch of the International Labour Organization, is therefore proud to present the second edition of its E-Learning Course on Measuring and Analyzing Labour Migration. The aim of the course is “to equip national and international stakeholders with the necessary capacities to better measure and analyze international labour migration and produce timely, high-quality, up-to-date international labour migration statistics, to report on the critical indicators of labour migration statistics based on the implementation of international statistical standards and guidelines for evidence-based policymaking.”
