Summary :

In September 2008, the ILO convened an international Tripartite Meeting of Experts on the Measurement of Decent Work, and consequently, adopted a framework of Decent Work Indicators that was presented to the 18th International Conference of Labour Statisticians in December 2008. The framework covers ten substantive elements corresponding to the four strategic pillars of the Decent Work Agenda (full and productive employment, rights at work, social protection and the promotion of social dialogue): employment opportunities; adequate earnings and productive work; decent working time; combining work, family and personal life; work that should be abolished; stability and security of work; equal opportunity and treatment in employment; safe work environment; social security; and, social dialogue, employers’ and workers’ representation.

We are now presenting the second version of the ILO Manual on Decent Work Indicators, Guidelines for Producers and Users of Statistical and Legal Framework Indicators. This second version presents several enhancements and additions to the previous version and we think that it will provide a useful tool for those interested in a complete analysis of the various dimensions of decent work at the country level, as well as those more focused on the data production. The Manual is based on statistical and legal international standards, adopted by the international statistical community, and promoted for the harmonization of regional and international data on employment and decent work. As the discussions and use of statistics on decent work evolve, the Manual will be further improved, taking on board feed- back received and new standards adopted. In particular, we think it will be very valuable for the forthcoming discussions on the post-2015 development agenda.
