Tip: the discussion should first establish the factual basis and then consider the actual implementation of the respective policies and actions.
  1. Does your country dispose of a system to collect, analyse and disseminate labour market data on a regular basis?

  2. When did your country carry out the latest Labour Force Survey?

  3. If no labour force surveys are carried out, have labour-market relevant questions been included into other household surveys?

  4. Is the National Bureau of Statistics involved in the collection of labour-market relevant data?

  5. Are the social partners associated with the collection, analysis and dissemination of labour market data and information?

  6. Does the UNDAF of your country include priorities or activities related to LMIS?

  7. Is the establishment or strengthening of LMIS a priority area of the DWCP? Does the country context analysis of the DWCP identify areas where data is missing?

  8. Do development partners support the government of your country, directly or through the ILO or other partners, in the design and implementation of LMIS?
