The OECD Employment Outlook 2010 is OECD’s annual report on employment and labour markets in the OECD area and beyond.  Opening with an editorial which analyses the immediate policy challenges and provides advice for OECD governments, and a first chapter that sets out the facts and figures related to recent employment developments and sets them in the broader economic context,  this volume goes on to provide analysis in three specific policy areas: the jobs impact and policy response in emerging economies, institutional and policy determinants of labour market flows, and the quality of part-time work. The volume closes with a statistical annex which provides the latest available employment data.  This book includes StatLinks, URLs under each graph and table linking to spreadsheets showing the underlying data.

From deep recession to fragile recovery

How labour market policies can help promote a quick return to work

The global economy is emerging from the worst financial and economic crisis of the past half century, but it will take time and strong political will to heal the wounds in the labour market. While the economic recovery is broadening and strengthening, employment growth is still lagging. In the two years to the first quarter of 2010, employment fell by 2.1% in the OECD area and the unemployment rate increased by just over 50%, to 8.7%, corresponding to 17 million additional persons in unemployment.
