The Conference Board International Labor Comparisons Program

The International Labor Comparisons program prepares trends of manufacturing labor productivity and unit labor costs that are comparable across countries. ILC examines country data series, identifies areas where concepts are not aligned, and adjusts series to a comparable basis. Productivity, unit labor costs, and underlying data series are available for 19 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia.
