Trade in employment by characteristicsAbstract

Trade in employment (TiM) by characteristics is part of the Trade in employment (TiM) database. It adds a characteristics dimension to labour market indicators published in the TiM database and is 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 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 by characteristics includes indicators based on employment for more than 40 economies (including all European Union and OECD), as well as region aggregates.

Currently, indicators are available for 12 individual economic activities presented in a hierarchy and based on ISIC Rev.4, and for the time period 2008-2018.

They are calculated using the 2021 edition of the OECD's Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) Tables (see http://oe.cd/icio) together with recent estimates of employment by industrial activity from official sources.
