Liberia: Labour Force Survey| 4mins
Director: ILO TV | Producer: ILO TV
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Switzerland
Statistical studies of the job market and the workforce not only help governments find out more about the current â€œstate of the nation,â€ they are key tools in deciding appropriate policies to create job opportunities and enhance prosperity. While common in Europe and North America, accurate labor statistics are hard to come by in developing countries. But thatâ€™s just changed in Liberia, a country particularly hard hit by past conflict and poverty. And the results are pointing the way to job creation and to an improved quality of life for everyone.
