1993 SNA Update Information - Measurement of labor inputs

Clarification description
Adriana Mata-Greenwood (ILO) Chapter XVII of SNA 93 (Population and labour inputs) includes several references to existing ILO Resolutions. One of these Resolutions, the 1962 Resolution concerning statistics on hours of work, may be revised at the next ICLS (possibly in 2008). The new ILO Resolution on working time measurement could have some impact on the revised SNA. The relevant changes to the Resolution include a revised definition of hours worked and improving the methodologies recommended for measurement, etc., in the light of the increased incidence of alternative working time arrangements. The revised Resolution will also cover the estimation of annual hours worked and labour input and Paris Group discussions have highlighted a small number of grey areas that could benefit from further clarification in the revised SNA. In this context, the Paris Group will provide further details in a more formal submission to the ISWGNA regarding Chapter XVII, possibly proposing clarifications to the revised SNA needed to accommodate a revised Resolution.
