8  Materials developed for this section are based on concepts and definitions laid out in the resolution adopted by the Thirteenth International Conference of Labour Statisticians in 1982. In 2013, new standards for measuring work, employment and labour underutilization were adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labour Statisticians. Activities to revise and update national data collection practices to be in line with the new standards are under way in a number of countries and regions around the world. The likely impact of the new standards on how statistics on women’s and men’s participation in the labour market are collected and how gender should be integrated fully into labour force surveys will require careful evaluation. For any further development, please contact the Department of Statistics, International Labour Office.
