Proposed indicators of gender gaps in job quality

Measuring and monitoring developments in gender gaps in job quality important are important for guiding policy to tackle gender inequalities in labour market outcomes. At the request of the Italian G20 Presidency, a number of indicators have been put forward in this paper that capture gender gaps in objective measures of job quality in the dimensions of earnings, labour market security and working conditions. Within these dimensions, indicators have been chosen based on the criteria of pertinece and parsimony, availability, comparability and timeliness.
