Global Jobs Indicators Database

Primary tabs

The Global Jobs Indicators Database (JoIn) presents - for 150 countries- more than 60 of the standardized labor supply indicators which are most commonly used in country Jobs Diagnostics. These cover socio-demographics, labor force status and employment type, employment composition by sector and occupation, education level completed, hours worked, and earnings. The database was compiled from national surveys and subnational microdata which was first harmonized for the Bank-wide I2D2 database, then quality checked by the Jobs Group. Jobs Indicators are disaggregated by urban/rural; male/female; and youth/adults and are presented for all years for which household surveys are available in the I2D2 database.
