Public spending on active labour market policies as a share of GDP

Show all indicators of Jobs


As digital transformation changes the labour market, adequate social protection is crucial to enable workers to adapt and transition to new jobs. Active and passive labour market policies play an important role in improving employment prospects. This indicator measures spending by central and local public authorities on schemes aimed at those unemployed, inactive, or employed but at risk of involuntary job loss, as a share of gross domestic product (GDP). Chief among active labour market policies in many countries is training to help people gain the skills needed for work, including information and communications technology (ICT) skills.
