Source: UNECE Statistical Database, compiled from national and international (EUROSTAT, OECD, CIS) official sources.

Definition: Employment, as referred to the System of National Accounts 2008, covers all persons - both employees and self-employed - engaged in a productive activity that falls within the production boundary of the system. It includes both the residents and the non-residents who work for resident producer units. In case of deviation, the actual definition is provided in the country footnote.

Employment data provided in this table generally differ from employment data provided in Gender Statistics, which cover only residents.

General note: The UNECE secretariat presents time series ready for immediate analysis. When appropriate, source segments with methodological differences have been linked or rescaled to build long consistent time series. As a result, absolute figures presented in this table may differ from those published by National Statistical Offices and should be taken with caution. However, the derived growth rates correspond to the originally reported series.

Regional aggregates are computed by UNECE secretariat. Population and employment aggregates are sums of national series. For national accounts: all current price aggregates are sums of national series converted into US$ at current PPPs of GDP; all constant price aggregates are calculated by summing up national series scaled to the price level of the common reference year 2010 and then converted into US$ using 2010 PPPs of GDP. Regional aggregates of CPI are calculated as weighted averages of national series using fixed 2010 weights based on final consumption expenditure in US$ at 2010 PPPs. Unemployment rates are the ratios of unemployed persons to labour force in the region.

Aggregates are computed for the following regions:
