Preface****

With ever-expanding global markets, international labor statistics have
assumed a greater role in assessing the relative performance of individual
economies and in influencing both national and international policy
decisions. However, direct comparisons of statistics across countries can be
misleading, because concepts and definitions often differ. To improve the
comparability of international labor statistics, the Bureau of Labor
Statistics (BLS) International Labor Comparisons (ILC) program adjusts data
to a common conceptual framework.****

** **

The BLS 2011 edition of Charting International Labor Comparisons features
2009 data, as well as trends over time, for the main indicators published by
ILC: gross domestic product, labor force, manufacturing hourly compensation
costs and productivity, and consumer prices. To increase country and
indicator coverage, data from other organizations also are included. (Notes
are provided at the end of each section to detail sources used and to
furnish helpful definitions.)****

** **

This edition of Charting International Labor Comparisons updates the
previous edition, with a revised set of countries and indicators. Country
coverage varies by chart and is based primarily on data available from the
ILC program. In recent years, ILC has improved its coverage of emerging
economies; as a result, country coverage for many indicators has been
expanded. ****
