International Labor Comparisons

Comparative analyses of national economies can help governments make wiser policy decisions.

Analyses of other economies illuminate the effects of various policies on workers and business and offer better ways to deploy workers and adjust to shifts in labor market demand. Upjohn researchers have examined how transitions from state ownership to market economies affected countries’ employment, wages and productivity and provided technical assistance to countries with transitioning economies as they established social insurance and reemployment programs.
