The International Labour Organization (ILO) has launched a new statistics database containing timely information on labor markets and consumer prices. The initiative is aimed at providing vital information needed by policy makers faced with a global economic and social crisis.

The new database contains selected indicators for some 70 countries and territories that gather infra-annual information for the current year. In addition, 40 indicators are available disaggregated by gender. The new service also includes an interactive map containing most of the data organized by country and topic. Of particular interest is the inclusion of seasonally adjusted sectoral data.

The database is available here.
