The yearly OECD Employment Outlook provides data on unemployment and employment ratios, together with articles on current topics: More and Better Jobs? --Aggregate Performance during the Past Decade Are employment gains registered during the past decade sustainable? How do employment losses recorded in the current economic slowdown compare with previous recessions? Is there evidence that progress in increasing employment has been accompanied by improvements in "job quality," notably as regards earnings inequality, job insecurity, and working conditions? The Labor Mobilization Challenge --Remaining Pockets of Excess Inactivity and Barriers to Moving up Job Ladders To what extent are certain population groups, such as women, older workers, and less educated workers, trapped in situations of labor market inactivity? Once employed, do they have career prospects or is there a risk that they will become trapped in low-quality jobs? Making Work Pay --Making Work Possible How can "make work pay" policies help improve the employment prospects of under-represented groups? To what extent can family-friendly policies and flexible work arrangements, such as part-time jobs, facilitate access to employment for these groups? Upgrading Workers' Skills and Competencies What explains the relatively low training incidence among the less educated, older workers, women, immigrants, part-timers, and temporary workers? How can training policies effectively reduce these inequalities and what is the role of cofinancing arrangements in such a strategy?
