Handbook on Measuring Quality of Employment

A Statistical Framework

image of Handbook on Measuring Quality of Employment
Employment is a key driver of social and economic development. It is also at the centre of most people's lives and the quality of an individual's employment is an important element of his or her well-being. At the same time, labour markets are evolving and the conditions of employment are continuously changing, which affects the lives of individual workers and members of their households. This development has been accompanied by growing interest in quality of employment and demands from policy makers, governments and researchers for more systematic information on the quality of employment to complement the well-established quantitative labour market indicators. To assist statistical offices in meeting user demands, the Bureau of the Conference of European Statisticians established the Expert Group on Measuring Quality of Employment to develop a set of internationally agreed guidelines for compiling quality of employment statistics. The Statistical Framework for Measuring Quality of Employment is the result of its efforts. The Framework offers a coherent structure for measuring quality of employment and provides practical guidance for compiling and interpreting a number of proposed indicators.
