Inventory for job quality (Edition 2015)

This inventory maps existing cross-country surveys that provide information on the characteristics of people's jobs. The information included in this inventory covers international surveys conducted since the early 1990s that are based on individuals' self-reported assessment of their current job, and cover 160 countries over 25 years. Indicators are grouped in 19 sub-dimensions of the quality of the working environment (one of the three categories of the OECD Job Quality Framework); for each indicator, binary codes (1 and 0) show whether indicators are available or not for the various countries and years. The inventory also provides users with detailed documentation on the questions used in the various surveys for measuring these sub-dimensions. This inventory will evolve into a full-fledged database providing quantitative information on the various indicators.
