Description of work
Breakdown of labour quantity into gender, age (3-4 categories), and level of educational attainment (3 or more categories). Development of industry-by-occupation matrices.
Obtain measures of total labour compensation.
Sources for labour quantity measures are national accounts, OECD STAN, GGDC and NIESR databases, where possible extended to obtain greater industry detail (see Appendix B) and additional breakdowns on the basis of national, OECD and EU labour force surveys, new EU hours of work survey.
Methodological research may focus on topics including consistency of employment from enterprise/establishment based surveys, household surveys and national accounts, definition of full-time and part-time employment, analysis of average working hours (e.g., with time use surveys). The primary focus will be a comparison of categories of educational attainment between EU and US, including vocational education. It will consider the usefulness of occupation classifications in considering demand for certain types of labour such as IT workers and its possible use as a refinement of skill measures. Determination of the definitive research agenda depends on key priorities emerging from meetings on data construction (during months 2 and 9).
