The Short-Term Labor Market Statistics dataset contains predominantly quarterly labor statistics, and associated statistical methodological information, for the 34 OECD member countries and selected other economies. The Short-Term Labor Market Statistics dataset covers countries that compile labor statistics from sample household surveys on a monthly or quarterly basis. It is widely accepted that household surveys are the best source for labor market key statistics. In such surveys, information is collected from people living in households through a representative sample and the surveys are based on standard methodology and procedures used internationally. The subjects available cover: working age population by age; active and inactive labor force by age; employment by economic activity, by working time and by status; and, unemployment (including monthly harmonized unemployment) by age and by duration. Data is expressed in levels (thousands of persons) or rates (e.g. employment rate) where applicable.
