Society at a Glance 2006

OECD Social Indicators

OECD's biennial stocktaking of social indicators of OECD countries, this unique publication has been revised to be structurally similar to OECD's annual Factbook.  For each of the almost 40 indicators provided, a two-page spread shows on the left side definitions of indicators and commentaries on trends, while the right side shows tables and graphs highlighting key messages found in the data. This edition includes general context indicators such as income per capita, self-sufficiency indicators such as mothers in paid employment; equity indicators such as gender wage gaps; health indicators such as sick-related absences from work; and social cohesion indicators such as trust in political institutions. This edition includes StatLinks, URLs under each table and graph that link to Excel spreadsheets containing the underlying data.

Work accidents are sudden and sometimes violent events occurring during the execution of work leading to health damage or loss of life of the worker. International comparisons of work accidents are difficult, because of differences in record-keeping – e.g. statistics sometimes only record "compensated" accidents in workplaces of a sufficient size and exclude minor injuries – and in data-sources – insurance companies, social security registers, labour inspectorates, establishment censuses and special surveys. Comparability has however improved since the adoption of an ILO Resolution on "Statistics on occupational injuries resulting from accidents at work" in 1998, which sets out standards for data collection and presentation. The Resolution recommends capturing data on all work-related accidents causing an absence from work of at least one day (excluding the day of the event) during a given reference period (usually one year).
