Eric Hayek is a Research Analyst with The Conference Board’s International Labor Comparisons (ILC) program. He is the program’s primary researcher and is responsible for producing comparative measures of employment and unemployment, labor productivity, worker compensation, and unit labor costs. He specializes in international data sources and in developing visual representations of data.
Prior to joining The Conference Board, Hayek was an economist for the International Labor Comparisons program at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). While at BLS, Hayek was the primary economist that developed a popular publication called Spotlight on Statistics: International Labor Comparisons, an interactive graphical report that makes data comparability more accessible to the public.
Hayek followed ILC from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to The Conference Board and has been integral in maintaining the continuity and quality of ILC reports throughout the transition. He holds a bachelor degree in economics and history from Coe College and is currently pursuing a masters degree in applied economics from Johns Hopkins University.
