  1. Using pseudo-panels to analyse labour market transitions

    23 February 2022

    This study describes and discusses methods that can be used to analyse labour market dynamics in the absence of true panel data. The so-called pseudo-panel models are particularly useful to investigate how the working conditions of different demographic groups change over time or due to aggregate shocks and policies.

  2. Technological Progress and the Dynamics of Self-Employment: Worker-level Evidence for Europe

    23 February 2022

    The paper explores how exposure to a certain type of technology in one’s occupation affects the probability of moving in and out of solo self-employment, and how this effect differs across worker groups. To answer these questions, the authors match worker-level data from EU-SILC with indicators of exposures to AI advances and routine task-intensity at the occupational level.

  3. Solo self-employment and lack of paid employment: an occupational perspective across EU countries

    23 February 2022

    This study provides some novel evidence on the relationship between solo self-employment and paid employment opportunities across 28 European countries and 8 occupations for the period 2012-19. The adoption of a cross-country cross-occupation analytical framework makes it possible to consider that both the solo self-employment rate and the availability of jobs in the wage and salary sector vary across occupations, as well as across countries within occupations.

  4. Measuring labour market transitions using a life-course perspective in selected developed and developing countries – an inventory of existing panel data and methods of analysis

    09 February 2022

    This report aims to provide interested researchers and relevant stakeholders with an overview of available methods and data sets to analyse labour market transitions in a life course perspective. Based on the description and evaluation of 32 datasets from 14 high-, middle- and low-income countries, it provides an overview of selected data sets as well as an evaluation of their suitability to study those selected transitions in a life course perspective with the discussed methodological approaches.

  5. Concept note and agenda: Research webinar on big data and the future of work

    03 February 2022

    This webinar, to be held on 3 February 2022, will be co-organized by the ILO, the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (EC-JRC) and the Labour Market Information Council of Canada (LMIC).

  6. EU-Korea Policy dialogue on the future of work

    The objective of this online dialogue is to bring together experts and stakeholders to discuss various future of work-related topics, including youth and older workers’ transitions, digitalization and new working arrangements.

  7. Big data and the future of work

    The workshop will discuss the possibilities of using big data sources to analyze ongoing future of work trends in both developed and developing economies.
