OECD in Figures 2008

This 20th edition of OECD in Figures is an original, simple to use, pocket data book. It is a primary statistical source. As with all OECD data, it is compiled and checked by our experts, so that decision-makers in government, research and business know they can rely on it. Thanks to the web edition, available via www.oecd.org/infigures, OECD in Figures is now more than ever the public gateway to one of the richest and most respected economic, financial, social and environmental databases around.

The 2008 edition of OECD in Figures contains key data ranging from economic growth and employment to education and migration. There are comparable tables on the environment, science, public finances, and on every theme the organisation is working on. For added perspective, OECD in Figures includes a selection of graphs, highlighting key challenges, such as public debt, climate change and development aid.

1. International comparisons should also take into account differences among countries in the length of tax brackets, the amount of tax relief and rates of social security contributions. The highest rate of income tax includes temporary special surcharges. All rates include rates of state and local income taxes as reported in the OECD tax database.
2. Gross earnings minus personal income tax and employees' social security contributions plus family benefits.
3. This percentage is influenced both by the overall tax level and the relative weight of personal income taxes and employees' social security contributions in national tax mixes.
4. One-earner family. Takes account of family allowances and/or tax reliefs.
5. Includes personal and corporate incomes not available separately. The OECD average does not include these figures.
6. Includes employees and employers social security contributions not available separately. The OECD average does not include these figures.
