provides a global picture of the quantity and quality of jobs, based on 20 key indicators of the labour market, including employment, unemployment, working poverty, hours worked, wages, labour productivity, types of economic activity and also looks at how youth and women are faring in the labour markets.
Starting from a series of articles (Cazes & Nesporova, 2004/5) and rules of good practice recommended by ILO in connection with the use KILM (ILO, 2005, 2007) for labour market analysis in different countries or regions (Global Employment Trends, 2008), we considered it appropriate to take into consideration the following aspects on labour market: labour force and participation indicators in the field of labour, indicators of employment and unemployment.
For a more accurate reflection of the participation in the labour market, we used alongside the indicator KILM 1--Labour force participation rate, a complementary indicator KILM 13--Inactivity rate, an indicator reflecting the number of people who, despite located at the legal age for employment (15 + years)--are not part of the labour force (in other words, are neither employees nor unemployed).
For the period 2000-2006, Romania had a relatively constant evolution, even if slightly downward of the KILM 1--and a streak slight growth of inactivity rate, regardless of sex, with a good rate of participation in the case of the male population.
For KILM 14 we find out for period 2000-2005 a slight decrease in labour with the level of primary education for the benefit of employment with secondary education, the mainstream Romanian labour market.
The next six indicators, KILM 2-7, relate to estimate the level of employment in the labour market.
KILM 2-7 offers a wide range of information, relating to employment-to-population ratio (KILM2), passing through a series of characteristics of taking up a job (KILM 3-6), to a special category of information, from a sector that is not always easy even to identify, engage in so-called informal sector of the economy (KILM 7).
For KILM 2 (2000-2006) Romania had during studied period a relatively constant evolution, even if slightly downward the rate of employment-regardless of sex, with a better rate of employment for the male population.
