General Comments: The labor force participation rates presented here are the ILO estimates from the ILO's Key Indicators of the Labour Market database and may differ from national estimates. The series includes both nationally reported and imputed data. These harmonized estimates use strict data selection criteria and enhanced methods to ensure comparability across countries and over time. Estimates are based mainly on nationally representative labor force surveys, with other sources (population censuses and nationally reported estimates) used only when no survey data are available. Caution should be used when comparing ILO estimates against national estimates.
