This collection of charts is intended to help business leaders and analysts navigate the global labor market environment by providing a global economic snapshot and by offering accurate comparisons between regions and countries. Often statistics from different countries are not comparable and do not allow for meaningful comparative analysis. The International Labor Comparisons (ILC) program at The Conference Board adjusts country data to a common basis to facilitate meaningful comparisons between countries. Comparable information about the labor force, labor costs, and labor productivity in different countries—all found within these charts—can lead to more sound location and human capital decisions. Charts and analysis refer to labor markets in up to 38 countries, including emerging economies in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
