Measuring Quality of Employment

The Task Force on the Measurement of Quality of Employment was formed and given its mandate by the Conference of European Statisticians in June 2007. By the end of its mandate, the Task Force proposed a set of indicators grouped under seven dimensions for the purpose of measuring quality of employment at the national level.

Nine countries (Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine) tested the applicability of these dimensions and their indicators in their respective context using their national data. The findings are accounted in the following country pilot reports. Of these countries, Canada produced an additional report on the immigrant labour market.

In the course of this work, the Italian National Institute of Statistics conducted an empirical study to assess data availability and constructability of the proposed indicators. The methodology and findings are reported in a validation study of the quality of employment indicators.
