Measuring Quality of Employment

What is quality of employment? What indicators should be used to assess it? These questions are not easy to answer objectively. Our interpretation depends largely on our experience and participation in the labour market.

This publication presents a concept paper and 9 country pilot reports (Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Moldova and Ukraine). They are primarily designed to measure quality of employment from the perspective of employed individuals, but also include some societal aspects.

Although the conceptual structure for measurement itself is still work in progress, the publication is the first to address the measurement of quality of employment on the technical and empirical levels.

Print copies are available free of charge and can be requested by email to support.stat@unece.org, indicating the publication title and your postal address.
