Preparing a Road Map on the Use of Administrative Data for Compiling Employment Statistics
Publication | June 2021
This brief identifies key elements for capitalizing on administrative data sources to monitor development indicators on labor and employment, with examples of initiatives in selected countries in Asia and the Pacific.
Labor statistics derived from administrative data can provide information to formulate and evaluate action plans on unemployment and work conditions, and to gauge the prevalence of the working poor. The brief offers a better understanding of employment-related development indicators and serves as a supplement to the ADB-published handbook on the use of administrative data sources for compiling development indicators, focusing on education, health, and registration systems.
