The world of labor is a tremendously important one, and even a cursory examination of the many statistics associated with the field can be a bit overwhelming. For the seasoned expert and the casual neophyte, there is the LABORSTA website. Drawing on data and metadata sets compiled by the International Labour Office, the site contains information culled from over 200 countries or territories. First-time visitors can view and extract data relating to employment, unemployment, hours of work, wages, consumer price indices, occupational injuries, and strikes. If this weren’t enough, the site also contains access to periodic data, public sector labor data, and employment by sex for detailed occupational groups. While such a collection might seem a bit daunting, there is, fortunately, a “Help” section that will make navigating the site relatively painless.
