Trade in employment (TiM): Principal indicatorsAbstract

The Trade in eMployment (TiM) database is a collection of labour market indicators designed to provide additional insights into global production networks and supply chains and complement Trade in Value Added (TiVA) indicators (http://oe.cd/tiva).

Estimates of employment or compensation of employees embodied in foreign final demand (or in gross exports) can reveal the extent to which a country's workforce depends on its integration into the global economy.

The TiM database includes indicators based on employment and compensation of employees for 51 and 64 economies respectively (including all European Union, OECD and G20 member countries and most East and Southeast Asian economies), as well as region aggregates, for the years 2005-2015.

Indicators are available for 36 industries within a hierarchy based on ISIC Rev.4.

The indicators are calculated using the 2018 edition of OECD's Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) tables (see http://oe.cd/icio) together with recent estimates of employment and compensation of employees by industrial activity from official sources.
