The framework on work statistics has been widely publicized over the years, particularly to data producers and policymakers, as it was designed to improve labour market and gender analysis.

*Replaced by the Resolution concerning statistics of work, employment and labour underutilization
NOTE: The ILO established a working group for the revision of the standards for statistics on informality.
